Call ​for a Health Service Ombudsman for England​

Since the demise of the Healthcare Commission in 2009 the PHSO is the second and final tier in the NHS complaint process.  If the NHS trust has not given a satisfactory response, after the complaint process ends, the complainant can go to the Ombudsman free of charge. 

The National Health Action Party is supporting a call ​for a Health Service Ombudsman for England​ rather than the current joint Parliamentary and Health Services Ombudsman. Read more here.

Dr Kishore Tewary informs us that a Birmingham group has been in existence for some time, and will soon be launching a Facebook group as well as online discussion sessions.

The group aims eventually to have face to face meetings, and decide on strategies/actions.
