Complainant Name:
Dr David McCartney

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Sunday Mail


Dr David McCartney complained through solicitors Shepherd and Wedderburn that an article inaccurately suggested that he had been suspended from Castle Craig Clinic after the death of a patient he was treating.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following apology to the complainant and removed the article under dispute from its website:

'Contrary to the claim in an article published on 4 March, we would like to make clear that Dr David McCartney was not suspended from the Castle Craig Rehabilitation Clinic in Peeblesshire following the death of inpatient Kieran Nichol. We wish to apologise to Dr McCartney for that error'.

Report: 76
