Complainant Name:
A man

Clauses Noted: 1, 2

Publication: Staffordshire Newsletter


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.


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.
