Abstract

Over 1 million people in the United Kingdom identify as LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning) with increasing literature highlighting inequalities in their cancer care. A recent study of US oncologists revealed 53.1% were confident in their knowledge of health needs of LGB patients and 36.9% of transgender patients. To date, no UK studies have evaluated selfperceived knowledge, attitudes and behaviours of oncologists about LGBTQ+ patients.
