My response…


Surely a “review” is an unbiased view of the services offered? If you remove an honest open review how can you remain impartial and expect people to trust your reviews?

Am I right? Or am I being silly?

One thought on “review”

  1. Dear Daniel,

    A review is the patient’s perspective on a service (we are happy to publish them whether biased or unbiased).
    That said, all reviewers are asked to ensure that the content they are submitting falls within the rules.

    At this stage, our moderation team have not rejected your review, it is under review.
    It may be they edit out the offending part, ask you to resubmit or reject the complaint against your review.
    We would therefore advise a pause until they make a decision
