Ms Lucy McGee, Director of Communications for the West London Mental Health Trust, complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article about Broadmoor Hospital was inaccurate when it referred to its patients as 'prisoners'.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the following correction:

An article of 28 February made reference to "prisoners" at Broadmoor Hospital. We are happy to make clear that Broadmoor is a high security hospital treating and supporting patients suffering from serious mental health problems.
