Alice Litman died in May last year, and her family believe the long wait she had to endure played a part. Litman had been referred to an NHS gender clinic in August 2019, and had been waiting more than 1,000 days for an initial assessment.  An inquest into her death will open on 18 September, and will reportedly examine delays she faced in accessing gender-affirming care, specifically from London’s Tavistock Gender Identity Clinic, according to her family, who described her as a “sweet and gentle person”. She “died partly because of the inaccessibility of gender-affirming healthcare in the UK”, they claim.
