Scottish Public Services Ombudsman

Call us on 0800 377 7330

If we find a problem, as well as putting things right for you, we want to make sure the same thing doesn’t happen to someone else. This is why we sometimes make recommendations after looking into a complaint. We follow up rigorously on every recommendation to make sure it is carried out.

Here are some examples :

  • a proper written apology
  • review a decision
  • change a process
  • put in place a procedure they should have had
  • comply with their complaints process

Sharing learning

We publish our reports to share the learning from complaints and help service providers improve.  You can search our online reports to read examples of our findings and recommendations.

For help searching reports phone our communications team on 0131 240 8849.
