Dr. Wright

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many complaints were made by patients to family health service authorities about general practitioners during the last year for which figures are available; and how many of these complaints were upheld.

Dr. Mawhinney

The latest available figures relating to formal complaints are contained in table 5.14 (Family Health Services) of "Health and Personal Social Services Statistics 1992", a copy of which is in the Library.

Figures for the numbers of comments, suggestions and informal complaints made to family health services authorities are not available centrally.
