Complainant Name:
Medway NHS Trust

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

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 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
