During 2007 the Department received a total of 36 complaints related to mixed sex accommodation, through the central correspondence system. The monthly breakdown is shown in the table.

The Department does not, as a rule, investigate individual complaints; rather it advises correspondents to follow the national health service complaints procedure. This directs complainants to local organisations to register and pursue the complaints.
