Complainant Name:
Jill Finney

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Independent

Complaint:

Jill Finney complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had breached Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice with its coverage of criticism levelled at investigations conducted by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). In the complainant's view, the coverage misrepresented the Grant Thornton report into allegations of a cover-up by the CQC and her actions as deputy chief executive of the regulator.

Resolution:

While the newspaper did not accept a breach of the Code, the complaint was resolved when the newspaper amended the online article, making clear the complainant's denial of the allegation in the Grant Thornton Report that she ordered the destruction of the Dineley report.
