The Ombudsman decided that there had been a significant delay in the Health Board’s response which caused inconvenience and frustration for Mr A. The Ombudsman decided to settle the complaint without an investigation.

The Ombudsman sought and gained the Health Board’s agreement to apologise to Mr A and offer him a financial payment of £50 in recognition of the delay. The Health Board also agreed to issue the complaint response within 4 weeks.
