Mr Paul Schofield complained to the Press Complaints Commission, under Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice, that an article published by the newspaper had contained an inaccurate account of doctors' earnings.


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

Following an article on July 25 which said that middle-grade doctors are on salaries of between 60,000 and 80,000 we are happy to clarify that the mean annual earnings for registrars is 53,173.
