Complainant Name:
Medway NHS Trust

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail


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:

Staff at Medway Maritime Hospital who took part in creating a fundraising calendar (Mail) made use of hospital facilities but did so entirely in their own time. The Trust is currently investigating the tragic death of Stewart Fleming in December.

Report: 79
