In December 2011 the government published an , health and social care. The action plan includes specific actions relevant to Health and Social care. The action plan was welcomed by the Yorkshire and Humber NHS Equality Leads group because much of the work of this group has focused on Transgender equality in 2011.

• Statutory Equality Duties and the NHS Equality Delivery System
• Patient care pathways
• Commissioning services to ensure transgender equality
• Engagement with transgender communities

• A Public Health perspective
