Has your Trust turned down LXP funding?


Our last blog promised to take you on a journey, using Freedom of Information requests to find out whether your local trust has been supportive of LXPs or actively withheld support when opportunities have become available.

Did you know that recently funding for a senior LXP (Band 7) post was offered to all NHS Mental Health Trusts in England? Did you know that this means that YOUR local trust was offered the chance to have this funding, allocated in January/February this year? Has a post like this been advertised locally? If not, why not? Did your trust even apply? Were LXPs locally part of the decision to apply?

Now you have an opportunity to find out. LXP Revolution has just sent in the FOI request. We have signed up to What Do They Know, a website that sends & publicly publishes responses from FOI requests. The response is due in 21 working days, on August 31. You can view it here:

  1. Can you please tell me how this offer of funding was made – from whom, to whom, when etc. Was it time-limited?

    1. Hi Isla, we don’t have any more information than what is contained within the response that NHS England gave to our FOI request, which we’ve published in our follow-up blog. If you find out any additional information we don’t have, please let us know & it could update the information on here. Here’s the link to the blog with the FOI info: https://lxprevolution.co.uk/2021/08/31/did-your-nhs-trust-accept-or-reject-lxp-funding-the-foi-results-are-in/
