Abstract

Discusses the role and functions of the Scottish Public Services Ombudsman (SPSO), how it developed, and the nature of the SPSO's relationship with the Scottish Parliament. Presents a typology of ombudsman models and considers how it applies to the SPSO in contrast to other UK ombudsmen. Assesses the implications of the SPSO's unusual characteristics for its relationships with citizens and public bodies and for its constitutional position.
