Update On The FOI Requests: Who’s Ballin’ & Who’s Stallin’?

At LXP Revolution, we have asked EVERY SINGLE MENTAL HEALTH TRUST IN ENGLAND about their recent response to employment of LXPs at senior level. That is 55 Trusts. We are swamped with info.

As you may (or may not) know, we are a bunch of lived experience volunteers. We are having to do this in our own time, managing our own health… so please bear with us. We will be updating this blog this week with where we are with each Mental Health Trust.

What we can say is that some Trusts have provided the information without any delay or issues. Others have not. In particular, they want us to name names of people within the collective. FOI requests require a name, usually an individual. But a company can make a request. In extreme circumstances, WhatDoTheyKnow.com will step in to make the request if a person needs to make the request anonymously.

We all know that LXPs face horrendous discrimination and career blocking, which is why we have used the name of the collective. We want to be treated equally to any company requesting information. Frankly, if it’s good enough for NHS England, who replied without any issues – its good enough for any other Mental Health Trust.

Keep checking back on this blog post this week for updates as we trudge through the data…
