Complainant Name:
Medway NHS Foundation Trust

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun

Complaint:

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.

Resolution:

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

Further to your article ‘Sick…joke’ (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
