The Ombudsman decided that there had been a delay which caused frustration and uncertainty to Mrs X. She decided to settle the complaint without an investigation.

The Ombudsman sought and gained the Health Board’s agreement to issue a substantive response to Mrs X complaint (within 6 weeks), which should also include an apology for the delay.
