About Patient Opinion Ireland

Patient Opinion Ireland was established in 2014, following in the footsteps of Patient Opinion (now Care Opinion), Patient Opinion Australia (POA) and Patient Opinion Scotland ( Also now Care Opinion). We are part of the Irish Society for Quality and Safety in Healthcare (ISQSH) a registered independent not-for-profit charity. 

Patient 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.


Patient 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. 

How it works:

  1. Share your story about using a health service
  2. We send your story to staff so that they can learn from it
  3. You might get a response
  4. Your story might help staff to change services

Share your story and help make our health service 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  

Patient 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 Patient 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, Patient 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!

Organisations can subscribe or register with Patient Opinion Ireland. Find out more, and sign up today.
