Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sunday Telegraph


Major General A P N Currie CB, Lieutenant Governor of the Royal Hospital Chelsea, complained to the Press Complaints Commission that three articles relating to the management of the Hospital were inaccurate and misleading.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following correction and apology in the Daily Telegraph (and online), in addition to the removal of the articles on the website:

Royal Hospital Chelsea

Following earlier reports the Royal Hospital Chelsea has informed us that while a minority of Chelsea Pensioners were unhappy with some of the changes that were taking place there was no "revolt". The Hospital has also asked us to make clear that the number of care staff in the Infirmary has increased rather than decreased, and that there is comprehensive cover at all times. We are happy to clarify these matters and apologise for any offence caused.
