Professional Health Information

The information posted on HealthUnlocked can support, but  will not replace the relationship between you and your doctor or any other healthcare professionals. Information from this site may inform your discussions as well as the exploration of treatment options with your healthcare professionals. You should always consult a healthcare professional if considering changing your medication or treatment.

Community Atmosphere

Your participation in HealthUnlocked should be with respect, honesty, and in the spirit of supporting and learning from your fellow users. 
HealthUnlocked is not a forum to create negative impressions about identifiable individuals. Negative and damaging references to identifiable individuals may be edited or deleted either by HealthUnlocked or by a community administrator. We hope that users will respect the right of other members to present their individual health experiences, regardless of whether or not they are in agreement, and that all disagreements will be expressed considerately.

Publishing Content (Questions/Posts/Replies/Private Messages)

Anything published on HealthUnlocked should be understood as being the views of that individual and does not necessarily represent the views of a particular patient group or of HealthUnlocked as a company. 
As a member of HealthUnlocked, you agree to publish information that is true and correct to the best of your knowledge and you agree to publish information that is primarily drawn from your expert knowledge or personal experience. You always maintain the option of deleting any content you have submitted at any time. 
When you publish information from third party sources, such as information about new treatments, you are asked to provide references and links wherever possible. 
If an account is suspected of violating our Terms of use or their specific community guidelines, particularly in the instance of bullying or spamming, actions will be taken. The account may be restricted (temporarily or permanently) from communities or banned.
