Care Opinion gives busy staff access to relevant real-time feedback
Stories are most useful when they get to the right staff. With Care Opinion, your staff will be notified about feedback that is relevant to them. This is all automated, simple to use and in real time.
Your patients can see how you listen and act on feedback
Care Opinion makes it easy for feedback to be transparent and accountable. Use the website to manage your reputation, as Care Opinion is the only place where everyone can see whether your organisation is listening and improving. Publicly show that your staff are listening to and engaging with feedback, and show when you make a change.
We will work with you to ensure that the information you get through Care Opinion integrates with any of your existing feedback mechanisms.
Use Care Opinion in your local conversations about care
Being public isn’t just about transparency. It’s what allows the stories on Care Opinion to be used by anyone who can help make care better. Lots of people want to help – and lots of people can help.
