Opportunity for staff to submit questions to the Inquiry

The Inquiry team want to ensure that current and former staff within mental health services in scope of the Inquiry’s Terms of Reference have access to information to enable them to contribute to and engage with the Inquiry. Services in scope are those which delivered NHS funded mental health inpatient care to patients in Essex between 1 January 2000 and 31 December 2023. Further information on this is set out in our Terms of Reference and accompanying Explanatory Note.

We have created a short form (also linked below) for you to use to submit any questions you may have to the Inquiry.

The form includes the option to submit questions anonymously, or to share your contact details with the Inquiry. Where we are able to, we will use your questions to update the FAQs on our website. There is also an option to receive a direct response to your query.

Please note that we are not currently accepting new evidence. Therefore please do not include any personal testimony or experiences in this form. Should you have information that you would like to share, please email us directly at:, and a member of the Inquiry Team will contact you with information on how and when you may be able to participate.
