The Ombudsman's Casebook provides summaries of complaints the Ombudsman has dealt with over the previous months. It is published quarterly. It can help service providers to learn from our examination of complaints and see what similar organisations are doing well and not so well.

The Casebook describes complaints (both upheld and not upheld) across all the areas dealt with by the Ombudsman, for example health, social welfare, education, local government (including planning, housing, roads and water supply), environment, agriculture, equality, taxation and payments/benefits received by the public.

The Casebook is published in PDF format and can be read online, downloaded or printed.
