Complainant Name:
Derek Watson, Chief Executive of The Dental Practitioners’ Association

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sunday Times

Derek Watson, Chief Executive of The Dental Practitioners’ Association, complained that an article had inaccurately suggested that NHS dentists earned salaries of £250,000 when this figure actually referred to a top earning practice before overheads had been taken into account. He also pointed out that dentists had to maintain a minimal level of activity with the NHS in order to retain their NHS contract, rather than their place on the Dentists’ Register as the article stated.

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a correction, in addition to a letter which it had previously carried which covered the issues raised by the complainant.

Report: 72
