My Care My Choice operates like a web forum and users write about whichever provider they have had experiences with. If your business has received negative reviews, the best response is to address the feedback – it often provides the opportunity to demonstrate how committed you are to customer service and continuous improvement.

Are reviews moderated?

What if someone writes an abusive review?

My Care My Choice aims to empower consumers to have a voice and tell their story. However, we are aware sometimes this forum may not be the most appropriate one, depending on the story. To protect users of the site, no abusive language is allowed to be included in reviews. In addition to this, we have set up alerts so any reviews which refer to instances of abuse, neglect, inappropriate or illegal conduct by the staff and/or provider will not go live. Rather, My Care My Choice will work closely with the consumer and the service provider to resolve the issues appropriately, respecting the privacy and confidentiality of the people involved.

What if someone writes a negative review?

All reviewers agree to Terms and Conditions of the site, which includes an indemnity clause against defamatory comments. My Care My Choice takes no responsibility for negative or defamatory comments made by reviewers, however will support the providers to resolve issues with as much transparency as possible.

How is a person’s privacy protected?

Reviewers create a username in their profile. The review is displayed under the person’s username, not their full name. This way their identity can be protected as much as they wish it to be. We collect phone numbers and email addresses so reviewers can be contacted by My Care My Choice if necessary.
