Complainant Name:
A man

Clauses Noted: 1, 2

Publication: Staffordshire Newsletter

Complaint:

A man complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had breached Clause 1 (Accuracy) and Clause 2 (Opportunity to reply) of the Editors' Code of Practice. The complainant was a surgeon, and the newspaper had published details of the complainant's appearance before a Fitness to Practise panel, but not published a follow-up article when the complainant's performance was found to be not deficient.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the original article was removed from the newspaper's website and the PCC negotiated the publication of a follow-up article both in print and online.
