Customer complaint data for the Department of Health

The Department of Health is committed to listening and responding to customer complaints. They are a valuable opportunity for us to identify where we could be doing things better. We are dedicated to working collaboratively to deliver quality services that are safe and responsive.

Complaint data 2017–18

In the 2017–18 financial year, the department received 1690 customer complaints. Of those:

  • 1547 resulted in follow-up or further action
  • 143 required no further action.

These figures are for the Department of Health only. They do not include complaints received by each Hospital and Health Service (HHS). Individual HHSs capture and manage complaints within their own systems and you should contact the relevant HHS directly to access their data.
