Clinical Advisors to the Public Service Ombudsman for Wales

In conducting investigations into complaints about Health Services, the Public Ombudsman for Wales needs to take professional advice from clinicians with appropriate knowledge and experience.  To date, this has usually been obtained from a central pool of advisers administered by the Health Service Ombudsman in England.  The Public Service Ombudsman for Wales is now seeking to obtain much more of the advice from within Wales.

Further information on the work of the Ombudsman in Wales is available here.
