Public Services Ombudsman (Wales) Act 2019

Section 60 - Special reports

236.Section 60(1) requires the Ombudsman to set out, in a special report, the facts that entitle the Ombudsman to prepare the report and to make whatever recommendations that the Ombudsman thinks appropriate, with respect to the action the Ombudsman thinks should be taken to remedy the injustice or hardship suffered by the person, and to prevent similar injustice or hardship being caused again.

237.Sections 60(2) and (3) set out the persons to whom the special report must be sent. The requirements that apply where the Ombudsman previously considered the matter in a full report under section 55 differ from those that apply where the Ombudsman previously considered the matter under the alternative procedure under section 58 or by means of an alternative resolution process under section 46.

238.Sections 60(4) to (9) makes further provision with regard to special reports. In particular, a special report is subject to similar restrictions with respect of naming or identifying individuals to those which apply to a report under section 55.
