Under the Local Authority Social Services and National Health Service Complaints (England) Regulations 2009, all National Health Service organisations must prepare an annual report covering the number of complaints the organisation received, the subject matter of those complaints and details of what action has been or is to be taken to improve services as a consequence of those complaints. NHS organisations must make this annual report available to anyone who requests it, including Parliament.
