Care Opinion together with the HSE would like to invite you to a launch of Care Opinion as the online platform for public feedback about mental health services in Sligo, Leitrim and Donegal.

Care Opinion has been available to health services across Ireland for some years. To date, mental health services in Sligo and Leitrim have been the pioneers in adopting online user feedback and using it to prompt learning and service improvements.

Interest has now spread to mental health services in Donegal, where staff are beginning to invite people to post feedback about their care.

Online launch event

5 May, 2pm - 3:40pm

Listening to patients, learning to improve

We are running an online launch event (via Zoom) on 5 May at 2pm. The event is open to  any staff, service users, patients, relatives and voluntary sector organisations who want to learn more about online feedback.
