A reminder about posting on HU, community guidelines


Once again we are having to remind people about the guidelines which members are EXPECTED to follow when posting. At all times we expect people to post respectfully. This is not a forum for angry exchanges and slanging matches. Please respect everyone's individual views but also, remember that you cannot understand, diagnose or give direct medical advice to people of whom you do not know their complete medical history.

I have put the community guidelines below for people to read:

Community Guidelines

As a member of HealthUnlocked you are expected to follow a few basic guidelines to ensure that every user feels safe and comfortable engaging with others in their communities.

Professional Health Information

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 on 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.
