Complainant Name:
Dr Adeniran Yesufu

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Nottingham Post


Dr Adeniran Yesufu complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published misleading information in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice in an article about a General Medical Council panel that cleared him in relation to allegations of misconduct.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following clarification:

Clarification on cleared doctor

In an article ("Doctor cleared of indecent exposure by medical panel," Nottingham Post, July 7) we said that Doctor Adeniran Yesufu has been cleared by a panel of the General Medical Council in relation to accusations that he had indecently exposed himself to employees at Nottingham City Hospital.

The report also stated that Dr Yesufu had been dismissed from Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust after allegedly indecently exposing himself to hospital staff.

To clarify, the dismissal and the GMC hearing related to the same incident.
