HC Deb 02 November 2000 vol 355 cc598-9W
Mr. Edward Davey

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many complaints have been made about NHS services from residents of the Borough of Kingston upon Thames in each year from 1992 to 2000. [135779]

Ms Stuart

Information on complaints about the National Health Service is not collated in the format requested. Data are compiled by the health authority or NHS trust rather than by complainant's district of residence. Information on written complaints in England is published in, "Handling Complaints: Monitoring the NHS Complaints Procedures", copies of which are available in the Library. The latest figures are for 1998–99. The data held prior to 1996–97 are not directly comparable.
