Dear European Ombudsman,
Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:
Please inform me of your stance ref redress when the UK PHSO has been ineffective.
E.g. Maladministration, failure to investigate when there is evidence of cover up behaviour in the NHS, failure to investigate in spite of evidence, concerns also regarding deaths also flagged up by the coroner, risk concerns.
Please advise the legal route for redress and what laws govern UK organisations if such "maladministration appears to be a culture and pattern of behaviour and cover up".
Dear Ms Graham,
Thank you for your e-mail to the European Ombudsman, which we are handling as a request for information. We do not hold documents specifically corresponding to the content of your request.
By way of general comment, please note that the European Ombudsman does not have competence over national ombudsmen or any other national public bodies. The mandate of the European Ombudsman for carrying out inquiries is strictly limited to the EU institutions and related bodies (such as the European Commission or EU agencies).
In terms of any possibilities of redress or complaints related to the work of the UK Parliamentary Health Service Ombudsman, I would advise you to directly contact the said ombudsman office for such information.
