Woman’s request for female only nurse met by a pre-op transgender medic ‘with stubble and a beard’

NHS is forced to apologise after a woman having a smear test specifically requested a female only to be met by a pre-op transgender medic ‘with stubble and a beard’

A woman who asked to be seen by a female nurse when she went for a smear test was ’embarrassed’ when she was allocated a person with ‘stubble and a beard’.

Upon being called in for the procedure, the patient said she was ‘distressed’ to discover that the nurse was biologically male.

When she pointed out the mistake, the nurse responded that their gender was not male and that they were transsexual.
