NHS bosses are accused of ‘woke pandering’ after hanging banner featuring 21 LGBTQ+ flags including little-known Demiromantic, Neutrois, Androgyne and Genderqueer colours – despite huge waiting lists

NHS bosses have been accused of ‘woke pandering’ after they brought out a banner featuring flags for 21 genders or sexualities.

Different terms for those who consider themselves not belonging to any sex, or are a combination of both, are included on the banner at Royal Stoke Hospital.

The familiar Gay Pride flag, which features a rainbow, appears on the banner alongside a selection of lesser-known identities – such as Polysexual, Demiromantic and Genderqueer. The collection of flags is titled ‘Everyone is welcome here’.

Patients at the hospital in Stoke-on-Trent have expressed outrage at the banner, with one telling The Sun: ‘People are waiting months and even years for treatment but the NHS is more interested in woke pandering than taking care of patients it seems.’

University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust – considered one of the country’s worst performing – said the flag enables patients to ‘be themselves’.

The trust added that the banner shows support for LGBTQ+ communities ahead of Pride month in June.

Jane Haire, UHNM Chief People Officer, said: ‘We understand that different individuals may have varying views on symbols and flags used to represent different identities but this banner symbolises our commitment to achieving a more inclusive organisation where both colleagues and the people we care for are encouraged to be themselves.’

The new banner comes after an NHS hospital was criticised last year for including 18 gender options on a patient form.

In November last year, NHS doctors also hit out at a new ‘nonsensical’ form they were being asked to fill out which involved ticking whether patients have a penis or vagina.
