Why TransActual?

As a trans led and run organisation, we have the knowledge, expertise and experience to ensure you and your colleagues are confident and ready to support your trans patients.

“From my perspective it was a very insightful and thought-provoking session. Chay was a very authentic speaker and I really appreciated Chay sharing his own personal experiences which really helped me see things from a different perspective. Chay was able to provide some ideas around really simple day to day things we can do to help create positive experiences and create a sense of trust through allyship such as sharing pronouns. I hadn’t realised such a simple step could have a positive impact on someone.”

Training for healthcare services and settings

Our training is developed and delivered by our experienced trans led and run team, ensuring that trans people’s voices are central to the training you receive. We can offer the training online, in-person or as a hybrid session and will adapt any session to meet your organisational needs and priorities.

Options for 90 minute workshops include:

  • An introduction to trans inclusive healthcare
  • Trans inclusion in Primary Care
  • Trans people’s barriers to care, health inequalities and how to overcome them
  • Including and supporting trans colleagues
  • A bespoke workshop to suit your needs

Options for half-day workshops include:

  • Trans inclusive healthcare and overcoming trans people’s barriers to accessing care
  • Trans inclusion in Primary Care
  • Trans inclusion at work and in healthcare
  • A bespoke workshop to suit your needs

Choosing a longer workshop provides more opportunities for discussion and more time to focus on issues specific to your setting, service or context.

We are able to offer two types of workshop series:

  • A bespoke curriculum of six to eight workshops, designed with your team’s progress in mind by a professional experienced and qualified in curriculum design.
  • A series of workshops for different teams within your setting or service, with each team attending a workshop adapted to their specific context and patient group.

Whichever type of workshop you choose, we can support you to report on the immediate impact by offering pre and post-workshop surveys with a follow-up evaluation report.

“We found the training invaluable, we have made changes to our New Patient questionnaire, changed our process around cervical screening, and we have also discussed how we address patients.”
