BBC Radio Guernsey posted the below on their Facebook Page:
“Guernsey’s health department has decided to start paying for sex change operations.
We’ll be talking about the issue on the breakfast programme with Jim from 7am.
But what’s your view on the move?”
This provoked some lively debate on Facebook.
You can listen to the discussion in the youtube link below where the BBC explain why the change in policy has happened, the cost of the surgery and how many people will be affected by this change. Along with answering many of the questions that this topic is bound to raise.
We also wanted to respond to BBC Guernsey’s social media debate over transgender reassignment surgery.
