Investigations with the Local Government and Social Care Ombudsman (LGSCO)

We work together with the Local Government and Social care Ombudsman (LGSCO) and can make joint decisions when this will give people a more effective service. Our ‘Joint data controller agreement’ explains how we share information on individual cases.

We now have a joint working team which handles investigations which cover the different areas our two organisations investigate - typically health and social care issues.

Both organisations work together to support Government and Parliament in their aim to create to a single Public Service Ombudsman for England.
