Complainant Name:
Dr JG Flood

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

Dr JG Flood complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published an article reporting on GPs' and hospital consultants' pay which contained inaccuracies and was misleading in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code.

Resolution:

While the newspaper did not accept that there was a breach of the Code, the complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the amendment of the online article so that it referred to "earnings" rather than "salaries".
