Complainant Name:
Mrs Elaine OíConnor

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Take a Break

Complaint:
Mrs Elaine OíConnor of County Durham complained that an article, written from the perspective of her sister, contained inaccuracies relating to their motherís residence in a nursing home.

Resolution:
The complaint was resolved when the magazine agreed to publish a letter from the complainantís brother which made clear that their primary concern was their motherís health and welfare. It further made clear that tribunals and case meetings had advised that their mother needed 24 hour care and it was totally untrue to suggest that she was being held prisoner in the care home.

Report: 72
