The Ombudsman's Office
The Ombudsman's Office is located at 18 Lower Leeson Street in Dublin.
The function of the Ombudsman is to investigate complaints from members of the public who believe that they have been unfairly treated by certain public bodies. At present, the public bodies whose actions may be investigated by the Ombudsman are: all Government Departments, the Health Service Executive (HSE) (and public hospitals and health agencies providing services on behalf of the HSE), and Local Authorities.
The Ombudsman also examines complaints about failures by public bodies to provide accessible buildings, services and information, as required under Part 3 of the Disability Act 2005. For these types of complaints the term 'public body' includes Government Departments, Local Authorities, the HSE and semi-state bodies, as well as most other state organisations.
