Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail


Mrs Penny Venables on behalf of Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an online article reporting on training measures at the Trust contained inaccuracies and was misleading in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the amendment of the online article and the publication of the following footnote to the online article:

An earlier version of this article reported that medical staff had been issued with punishment cars by the Trust. We have been informed by the Trust that punishment cards were not issued. We are happy to make this clear.
