@charliekiss @Tara_Hewitt 1/ You are aware that NHS trust patient databases have, for some time now been required to have fields disclosing transition? Not the central one of all names, addresses, phone numbers, NHI number, & GP, fortunately though. I think I've avoided being so recorded, have you?
@charliekiss @Tara_Hewitt 2/ They did try to get it as required information in all electronic referrals, but we stopped that, but there's a national advisory committee run by all all the royal colleges pushing for it. It is likely the data from Equality Monitoring forms is used to fill gaps in the records
@charliekiss @Tara_Hewitt 3/ As you know, NHS records show current gender; they added a "Sex at Birth" field, which is labelled as "this will normally determine medical treatment". Yes, Really. They got that in without testing, consultation, or notice. I'd love to know what @UKTELI has done about it.
@charliekiss @Tara_Hewitt @UKTELI 4/ Interestingly, they were paid £1m, & took a year to develop this "all disciples accepted" data set, with lots of testing, but added the "sex at Birth" field after all that, and still claim it was tested & consulted. This is all in public documents.
@charliekiss @Tara_Hewitt @UKTELI 5/ Because the idea of transferring that via eReferrals was blocked it has been dammed up within each trust, but a new NHS resource is compiling data on which trusts hold data on any patient, so NHS staff with access/hackers will be able to see what other trusts have 😒
@charliekiss @Tara_Hewitt @UKTELI 6/ Obviously that is not clinically correct, nor GDPR or #EqualityAct compliant. The #GRA has a loophole allowing medical staff to pass on transition information w/o consent, but avoiding collecting data on whether a #GRC is held or has been applied for puts other staff at risk.
