HOW TO CONTINUE ABUSING THE MENTALLY ILL BY ABUSING FREEDOM OF INFORMATION
When asked via Freedom of Information how many times the Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust had failed to provide a Mental Health Representative on a Cornwall Homechoice Welfare Priority Assessment Panel since 2009, the NHS Trust said the cost involved in collating this information would exceed the ‘appropriate limit’ as defined by the FOI so the Trust is not obliged to comply with the request for information.
