Complainant Name:
Medway NHS Foundation Trust

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun


Medway NHS Foundation Trust complained that an article inaccurately reported the treatment of a man who had died at Medway Maritime Hospital. The Trust also complained about an article which alleged that staff had posed for a charity calendar when they should have been working. In fact, the calendar was produced by staff in their own time.


The matter was resolved when the newspaper published the following letter from the Trusts chief executive, Andrew Horne:

Further to your article Sickjoke (December 31), staff at Medway Maritime Hospital took part in creating a fundraising calendar in their own time and not while at work as the article could have implied.

Report: 78
