A woman in the United Kingdom is accusing a hospital of cancelling her surgical procedure after she asked to only be treated by biologically female nurses.

The woman, who is remaining anonymous, told the Daily Mail that she was scheduled to have a colorectal surgery at London’s Princess Grace Hospital until she complained about a transgender woman nurse checking in on her during preparation for the intimate procedure. She reportedly asked for an all-biologically female nursing team going forward, at which point her appointment was cancelled.

The north London woman told the Daily Mail that having an all-biologically female nursing staff aligned with her personal beliefs. She did not fill out paperwork about her gender identity or pronouns and said she did not want to engage with “such manifestations of gender ideology.”

“I began to wonder if it was just a coincidence that this member of staff with a “gender identity” had made their presence felt to me in such an inappropriate way during my first visit,” she told the Mail. “I began to suspect that I had been targeted because my patient records showed that I refused to use pronouns and wanted single sex facilities, although I have no evidence of this.”

A survivor of sexual assault, the patient said she began to “panic” once the biologically male nurse entered her room due to the nature of the care she was receiving and the fact that she would be immobilized for an entire week after the procedure. After the incident, she complained to the hospital and made her request.

Princess Grace chief executive Maxine Estop Green replied to her email, telling her that the procedure was off and the hospital “did not share her beliefs.” She allegedly claimed that the hospital was acting to protect its staff from distress and discrimination.

HCA, the parent firm for the hospital, said it could not comment on specific patients’ situations for reasons of confidentiality, according to the Mail. However, it did say that some patient requests “are particularly challenging, given the diversity of our colleagues.”
