'NHS hospitals are routinely allowing men who self- identify as women to share hospital wards with female patients.
Male patients do not even need to have started transitioning to be admitted on to a ward as a female, a probe has found.
The rules, which would appear to go against Department of Health policy to eliminate mixed sex wards, apply in every NHS trust in England, the Daily Telegraph reported.
The NHS does not know how many transgender patients are accommodated on wards with the opposite sex because they are recorded in data as their preferred sex.
Staff at one trust are even advised to consult with the trans patient if a woman who has been a victim of sexual assault objects to sharing a ward with someone who is biologically and legally male. Official guidance from the Department of Health states: ‘Men and women should not have to share sleeping accommodation or toilet/bathroom facilities.’
Exceptions are made, however, ‘where it is in the overall best interests of the patient or reflects the patient’s choice’.
This gives male patients who identify as female the right to be treated as female, and vice versa for female patients who identify as male.
Conservative MP David Davies said: ‘It’s quite right that a Conservative government made a commitment to end mixed sex wards. People with male bodies should be on male wards.’
A nurse in one hospital reported that a patient identifying as a transgender woman appeared to become sexually aroused on a female ward, distressing elderly patients. The report, from Freedom of Information requests, creates concerns about the ‘equality impact assessments’ undertaken by hospitals that are supposed to examine how policy changes affect all groups.'
