Ombudsman Reform – MP Briefing Meeting.

Draft legislation for the new Public Service Ombudsman will be released for debate in parliament this spring.  Very few MPs are aware of these proposals or the opportunity this presents to finally deliver an effective and accountable Ombudsman service.

Please send this flyer  to your MP along with the proforma letter and invite them to attend the MP  Briefing Meeting on 23rd February in Committee Room 7, HoC starting at 3.00pm.  If your MP agrees to meet you there, then please come along too.  We need MPs to be our voice in parliament when this debate goes through the House.  To ask questions and scrutinise the legislation in committee.  Please alert your MP to this important legislation.  Even if they are unable to attend, it will raise awareness.  Let’s not allow this opportunity to slip through our fingers. Flyer 2

  1. This is most welcome and long overdue In my family’s case it has taten 3 years and over 4500 pages of reports with evidence and In am still waiting for a final decision.
    Navigating their maze of processes has been a nightmare and a traumatic experience
    which has added greatly to the damage done by a private healthcare company and the Leeds NHS. both of whom engaged in lying and deceitful practices.

    The PHSO is doing it’s own reform programme but the Management and many of the staff are just not up to the job.Julie Mellor must go and without compensation or further honour.

    • You are quite right. PHSO has been failing the public for many years and the arrival of Dame Julie Mellor in 2012 has done nothing to improve the situation. We need a complete rethink in Ombudsman reform and the new Public Service Ombudsman must serve the public and not protect the public bodies.

  2. This is a step forward we need to be united and stand up for our rights we have some powerful people on our side we need to get our MP involved as we have election looming the timing could not be better Christine xxxx
