  13. 13. NAO guidance<br />“Overall, data on the costs of complaints handling are poor. The main evidence of efficiencies is that health and social care processes conclude around 95 per cent of complaints in an average of 23 and 17 days respectively;<br />…but our evaluation suggests that the current systems do not meet the criteria for an effective complaints system of being accessible, responsive, and demonstrating that lessons are being learned”<br />Effective advocacy makes the spending more likely to be value for money<br />
