Important changes coming to the LUPUS UK HealthUnlocked community

Hi everyone. I just wanted to take a quick moment to let you know about some big changes to this community which will be coming next week and any disruptions to the service there may be as a result.

On Tuesday 9th July, HealthUnlocked will be upgrading to a brand new platform! You can get a sneak peak of some of the features in this video from their Community Management Day earlier in the year.

Some of the features that will be introduced include;


This new feature should help make it easier to find posts that you’re interested in. There will be a few categories including but not limited to; medication, getting a diagnosis & benefits.


When you write a post or a question, HealthUnlocked will automatically suggest words or phrases as key words. This should make it easier to find other posts and questions on the same topics.


It will now be possible for me to pin posts, so that they can be easily found when logging in. This will be used for the most recent LUPUS UK blog post, but can also be used for seasonal information such as Flu Jabs, or for popular questions with good answers.

Recommend Button

If you think somebody has written a very good post or provided a good comment, you’ll be able to show your approval by clicking ‘recommend’ on it.

Unfortunately, in order to bring this improved site to you, the website will be inaccessible on Tuesday 9th July between 9am and 1pm GMT. You’ll be able to log in to the brand new site some time just after 1pm GMT. I apologise for any inconvenience this down time may cause.

Also, with any new website, there may be a few teething issues. If you experience any technical difficulties, please send me a private message or email and I’ll liaise with the HealthUnlocked team to get it fixed pronto!

If anybody has any questions, please let me know and I’ll do my best to help. I hope that you all enjoy the new platform. Having seen the changes myself, it is a vast improvement over the current site and should lead to a better experience for new and experienced members.

Best wishes,
