I have been in contact with a number of leading organisations in healthcare and healthcare education. The Mental Elf (Minervation Ltd) describes itself as providing “evidence-based mental health research” that is “summarised by experts, blogged by elves.” The Mental Elf website states that this is offered with “No bias. No misinformation. No spin” Currently, the Mental Elf has over 64,000 followers.
As yet The Mental Elf has not responded to the question of whether s/he supports sunshine legislation. Without sunshine legislation, the Mental Elf woodland will be dark and you never know where wolves may lurk.
Sunshine legislation would make it mandatory for all competing financial interests of doctors, healthcare workers and academics to be declared in an open, central, single, searchable register.
