HealthUnlocked is a private company that transforms patient experiences into clear understanding. We do this by enabling people to share online their health experiences and information that helps decision-making, improves health and well-being, and provides support.
HealthUnlocked is owned and operated by Everything Unlocked Limited registered in England and Wales under company number 6596274. Its registered office is: 133 Great Suffolk Street, First floor, London SE1 1PP.
Our Site's content, or any content on other sites linked to from Our Site, is not a substitute for professional medical advice. Even if another user appears to be a medical professional they are not in a position to examine you or understand your detailed medical history and therefore you should always speak to a GP or other health practitioner about your condition and/or treatment or changes to your condition and/or treatment. In an emergency dial 999. Never delay seeking advice or dialling emergency services because of something that you have read on Our Site.
If you use Our Site it is likely that this will involve sharing information about your health experiences. Although we will always ask for your permission to share your information, it is important that you understand how our data sharing relationships work and what information is shared with our different partners and users. We have set out further information in our privacy statement which we encourage you to read. To view our Privacy Statement click here.
Members can choose at any time whether their deidentified healthcare experiences are shared or not with our research partners. You can learn more about how our services are funded here.
