PRiSM statement about Conversion therapy:
"The Royal College of Surgeons of England's Pride in Surgery Forum (PRiSM) considers Conversion therapy to be a harmful practice with zero efficacy which we believe should be banned by law in the UK. A ban should not be delayed further by claims that a debate is needed or that the matter is too complex given the implications of it continuing and any ban must protect all LGBTQ+ individuals from attempts to change their gender identity and/or sexuality. We consider that a ban must apply in all cases, with no exemptions for informed consent, for adults or for religious organisations. PRiSM also advocates that the Royal College of Surgeons of England recommends to qualified practitioners, fellows and members that they should not undertake or facilitate conversion therapy. In addition, we recommend that undergraduate and postgraduate curricula should not include or allow participation in conversion therapy and should instead promote a positive and inclusive view of LGBTQ+ individuals and culture while highlighting the historical stigmatisation of LGBTQ+ individuals."
