Headline

We must improve cancer screening for trans and non-binary people

Comment

If a woman has failed to attend for a smear test, then the medico-legal onus was on the GP to remind her at every attendance thereafter. That's why the GPC should be campaigning for smear tests to be taken out of primary care and placed in sexual health / family planning services, so that we have no responsibility for the national screening programmes. The complexities of transgender health care make this more imperative.
