About Care Opinion Ireland


For a quick guide to who we are and what we do, check out our FAQs page.

Care Opinion is a website which allows the public to share a story about their Health and/or social care experience in a safe and simple way. The website provides a platform which automatically sends stories to the right service/s. This allows them to respond to and learn from the feedback to improve care for everyone. 

Patient Opinion Ireland was established in 2014, following in the footsteps of Patient Opinion (now Care Opinion), Care Opinion Australia (POA) and Care Opinion Scotland ( Also now Care Opinion).

Care Opinion was founded in the UK in 2005 and since then has grown to be the UK's leading independent non-profit feedback platform for health services.


Care Opinion Ireland is about honest and meaningful conversations between patients and health services. We believe that your story can help to make health services better.

Patient Opinion Ireland regularly features in the national and local press, or you can find out what we are up to on Twitter and Facebook.

Health and social care organisations

Care Opinion Ireland works because health and social care organisations are able to easily hear this feedback. If your healthcare organisation doesn't currently work with Care Opinion Ireland, then get in touch! It’s free to register, so that you can listen and respond too.

For organisations who want to make the most of this system, Care Opinion Ireland offers a subscription service. This service helps busy organisations to use real time feedback to have a genuine impact on their services. We help make sense of the feedback and data, giving your busy staff a simple way to make cost-effective, measurable improvements – that are visible to everyone!
