Complainant Name:
Dr John Cormack

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: South Woodham and Maldon Weekly News

Complaint:

Dr John Cormack of Greenwood Surgery complained that an article had inaccurately claimed that in 2004 he had given the Maldon and South Chelmsford Primary Care Trust one month’s notice to quit the surgery. In fact, Dr Cormack had repeatedly offered the PCT the opportunity to continue an NHS service at the surgery – and Dr Cormack at present runs an NHS practice from Greenwood Surgery.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a front page apology, with a link to a letter from the complainant, in which he set out that his views on South Woodham Ferrers’ new medical centre in more detail.

Report: 73
