Care Opinion gives you another way to feedback about the health and social care services you’ve used. Care Opinion is an independent, non-profit feedback platform. Your comments are passed on to the service provider who will often give you a public response on the website and where possible, use what you’ve told them to improve services or pass on praise to staff.
