How we moderate


Error updating site page. We've logged the issue, please try again later.

Care Opinion has a moderation policy which governs how and what we will publish.

Why do we have moderation policy?

We want this to be a place where you can read the experiences of other people using health and adult social care services, and where the feedback offered by users can make a real difference to how services are run.

So we do not publish irrelevant or commercial postings (like advertising and spam). We also reject swearing, discrimination, or other offensive language.

The feedback we publish must always relate to one or more specific episodes of care.

Ideally, we'd like any criticism of services to be constructive, however bad the experience may have been. And we don't want you, or Care Opinion, to face any legal threat from any individual or organisation which is criticised.

So that we can moderate your story and to make it readable for others, it should be 1,000 words or less.
