from fake, fraudulent and misleading reviews
Every month, our clinical governance committee meets to examine flagged reviews and the supplementary information provided along with each report. They assess the reviews based on our terms and conditions as well as our acceptable use policy.
If it is established that a review contravenes our acceptable use policy, it is archived. And, if it is determined that a review adheres to our policies, it is published on our platform.
The provider who flagged the review is then notified of the outcome. All approved reviews are published one week after this notification.
Minutes from each clinical governance committee meeting are taken and kept on file. We have records of all decisions made during these discussions. In special cases, people can email firstname.lastname@example.org to request copies of specific items on these meeting agendas.
