National Health Service complaints are recorded by subject of the complaint, the organisation being complained about and the professional grouping. Prisoners are not specifically identified in these data sets and it is therefore not possible to provide figures in the format requested.

Data in respect of complaints referred to the Health Services Ombudsman is not collected. However the Ombudsman publishes annual data on the number of complaints they receive.
