Welcome to the Office of the Ombudsman
Independent. Impartial. Free to use.
We examine complaints from people who feel they have been unfairly treated by certain public bodies, for example, government departments, local authorities, the HSE and publicly funded third level education bodies.
We provide a free public service which is open and accountable. Our job is to examine complaints in a fair and impartial way.
Ombudsman Peter Tyndall
Have you ever made a complaint to a public hospital?
The Ombudsman wants to hear your experience, both good and bad, of making a complaint to a public hospital.
If you were unhappy with the service provided by a public hospital and did not make a complaint, the Ombudsman also wants to know why.
