Share your story
Would you like to tell others about your skin or associated rheumatic condition and how it has affected you? Your story may help others cope with their own conditions. You can add your story and read other peoples experiences at Health Unlocked and Patient Opinion.
If you’ve experienced health care recently, either as a patient yourself or as a carer or friend of someone else, please share how it was. What was good? What could have been better?
Sharing health experiences with others can contribute to self-help and provide patient empowerment. It can improve not just our own care but the care of others.
Your story will be handled confidentially by the non-profit service Patient Opinion. Your story may appear (without your name) on their website. Patient Opinion asks the health service to respond to the feedback you share, but does not reveal your identity.
This service is independent of this site and the NHS.
