Sessions on PHSO's sepsis and midwifery reports concluded, future sessions on other reports to be announced
The Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman (PHSO) investigates complaints where individuals have been treated unfairly or have received poor service from government departments, other public organisations and the NHS in England. The service that PHSO provides is governed by law, free to use, open to everyone and completely independent.
The Public Administration Select Committee (PASC) resolved in September 2014 to hold evidence sessions on the government’s response to PHSO reports.
Until then, the most recent example of PASC holding evidence sessions on particular Ombudsman reports was on Equitable Life in 2009. As the first example of the new way of working, PASC took evidence from healthcare experts in a one-off session on 10 September 2014, following up Ombudsman reports into severe sepsis and midwifery supervision and regulation.
PASC is following up certain reports of the Parliamentary Health Service Ombudsman
