Complainant Name:
Mr Gary Walker

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Crawley News

Complaint:

Mr Gary Walker, Chief Executive of Surrey and Sussex NHS Trust, complained that an article which reported that, owing to the fact that he was on holiday, he had missed a meeting with the Prime Minister was inaccurate and misleading.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following clarification: ‘Further to our front page story of the 19th April, headlined "Meet the PM? Sorry I am on holiday", we have been asked to make clear that Gary Walker, Chief Executive of Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust, was never invited to the meeting with the Prime Minister to which the article referred. Professor Irene Scott, Director of Nursing for the Trust who did attend the meeting, did not do so "in Mr Walkers place". We are happy to clarify the position and regret any inaccuracy’.

Report: 73
