Penarth Labour AM and NHS Minister Vaughan Gething poses with the “Trans Ally”  flag he has signed –  backing the NHS treatment demands of the “Transgendered Community”

The Labour AM for Cardiff South and Penarth appears  to be  backing calls for the so-called “trans community” to receive more free sex treatment on the NHS.

Gething – who is “Health Minister” in the Welsh Labour Government  has been meeting “trans” activists who are campaigning o receive free fertility treatment –  despite escalating cost pressures on the NHS in Wales and cuts to NHS budgets inflicted by the Welsh Labour Government.

The Wales Equality Alliance says Gething has had talks with trans activist Jenny M Charles to “discuss a way forward in addressing urgent health needs of the trans community in Wales”.

One local healthcare worker told PDN “It’s time Gething actually focussed on the real priorities of the NHS in Wales – like providing enough General Practitioners – rather than involving the NHS in  minority fringe issues”.

Another critic says accuses trans people of getting NHS drugs to reduce  their fertility and  then demanding “the NHS restore their fertility”

NHS England is being threatened with legal action if it does not start offering fertility treatments to transgender patients.

Gething is   said to have signed a “Trans Ally” flag to be displayed at a forthcoming gay “pride” event.

Gething is also campaigning to  be elected Leader of the Labour Party in Wales – and if he wins would succeed Carwyn Jones as  First Minister in the Welsh Assembly.

      Thanks for your in depth analysis.

      Penileaks and Tax Payer (aren’t most of us?), I suggest that if you, or anyone dear to you, have the misfortune to suffer serious illness or accident you will find out that the NHS is not s**t. To suggest otherwise is, at best, misinformed or, at worst, malicious.
