Who do I complain to about Private Hospices

The request was partially successful.

Dear Department of Health and Social Care,
I have written to many Depts. including the Parliamentary Ombudsman, and The CQC who both deny having responsibility for complaints against private Hospices? So just who are they regulated by & whom do i write my complaint too.?

Yours faithfully,

Mr Steve Winder

Dear Department of Health and Social Care,

Thank you for your reply however, you have told me what i already know & quoted places that i have already been in contact with? Both the Parliamentary Ombudsman & the ICQ tell me they cannot investigate my complaint as the Ombudsman states that although the NHS part fund this private hospice the monies they give do NOT actually get spent on the Patient? Further the ICQ say they do not investigate complaints? So I am left in no-mans land?
From what i gather then this Private hospice can operate its services without being overseen apart from its own complaints team which again i have already dealt with?
Surely this cannot be right?

Yours faithfully,

Steve Winder
