Gay-rights campaigner Clare Dimyon requested a natal female to perform a mammogram for her in 2018. In August 2019, Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust published its new trans policy. It included the letter as an example of ‘highly discriminatory’ correspondence from patients which should be referred to the hospital’s equality diversity and inclusion team. Her name had been redacted from the letter.
