Dear Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust,

I write to ascertain what diagnostic criteria clinical psychologists were and are permitted to use within the organisation or is it the case that Clinical Psychologists are not and and have not been permitted to diagnose and this must be carried out by a Psychiatrist.

In any case, I wish to know what is the diagnostic criteria that the Trust uses and would this be DSM 5 or ICD 10?

I look forward to your response.

Yours faithfully,

Robert McCarren

Dear FOI (MCT),

I thank you for your swift dealing with my requests, the information provided has been very helpful.

Based on what has been said I want to understand more about the diagnosed patients but I am unsure as to how progress of the diagnosed patients went and I accept that it may be difficult data to provide.

I think the only way to gain the data and making it straight forward for MC is to ask Based on the diagnosed patients how many diagnosed in each of the years were discharged after diagnosis, or at what point were they discharged.

I don't know the data that MC has so if you could suggest how you could satisfy this would be helpful and whatever you can provide I am sure will assist.

Yours sincerely,

Robert McCarren
