Complainant Name:
Ms Yvonne Davies, Communications Manager for Central Manchester and Manchester Children’s University

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sunday Times

Complaint:
Ms Yvonne Davies, Communications Manager for Central Manchester and Manchester Children’s University Hospitals NHS Trust, complained that an article, which referred to £9 million pounds spent on hospital art, may have incorrectly suggested to readers that the NHS could have used the money for patient care or additional staff. This was not the case and, as the article stated, the majority of the money for art and art projects did not come from the NHS but from charitable donations.

Resolution:
The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a letter from the complainant.

Report: 72
