Dear NHS South East London Integrated Care Board,

Please could you tell me whether you implement a ‘same-sex’ personal care policy for your social care service users? Or if you have moved to a ‘gender based’ policy?

Does this policy apply to social care users who receive CHC funding provided by you, as well as those who receive council funded social care?

Please provide proof of your policy.

Do you instruct all care agencies in the area to comply with your policy or are each able to implement their own policy?

Yours faithfully,

Harper Cooper

FOI, NHS South East London Integrated Care Board
