Social Media Principles

Our social media pages provide a place in which to share information. However, due to regulations, we cannot discuss prescription-only medicinal products, provide personal medical advice or diagnosis.
We welcome your general questions, comments and suggestions, but if you think you may require medical attention then you should visit your local healthcare professional for an accurate diagnosis and advice that is personalised to you.

We will endeavour to respond to @ mentions and/or replies and ensure that any factually incorrect information shared is corrected as soon as possible. We are not responsible for content altered in retweets or shared posts. Where we are unable to provide the information you need, we will instead suggest who you should contact.
