Dear Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust,

Do you have any arrangements in place with personal injury law firms
to advertise their services in your medical facilities? How many firms advertise in your facilities and what form does that take?

What was the estimated annual income in 2016/17 for your trust from personal
injury firms paying for advertising in your medical facilities?

Are there any recorded examples of personal injury firms suing your
trust with which you have these advertising arrangements?

How many complaints from patients have been made to your trust about
personal injury firms advertising in your facilities in the last year?

Yours faithfully,

John Hyde
