The experiences of ageing in the transgendered population.

This questionnaire has been composed by Matt Broadway-Horner for this research which has been granted ethical clearance from Robert Gordon University 2017.  Please feel free to add as much as you want to in telling me about your experiences.  Many of the questions have an open text box so that you have this freedom
The purpose behind this survey is to find out the experience of ageing for a population that is underrepresented in social policy. Now the ageing population is booming and presents services with challenges that need to met. I recently published on the topic of ageing in LGBTI populations in an academic book that pursues the topic of encouraging healthcare workers to pursue anti-discriminatory practice. As a senior clinician and researcher I am wanting to encourage my colleagues in health to tackle inequalities. You are under no obligation to answer any question.  If you want to leave blank then that is fine.
