All links from this website are selected using our links policy. Links are provided for information and convenience only. We cannot accept responsibility for the sites linked to, or the information found there. A link does not imply an endorsement of a site; likewise, not linking to a particular site does not imply lack of endorsement.You do not have to ask permission to link directly to pages hosted on this site. However, we do not permit our pages to be loaded into frames on your site. The pages must load into the user’s entire window. You must not use the NHS logo to link to our site without prior permission.AccuracyEvery effort is taken to ensure that the information contained in this website is both accurate and complete.Availability

We cannot guarantee uninterrupted access to this website, or the sites to which it links. We accept no responsibility for any damages arising from the loss of use of this information.

Intellectual property

The names, images and logos identifying Northern Care Alliance Research & Innovation are the proprietary marks of the NHS. Copying our logos and any other third party logos accessed via this website is not permitted without the prior approval of the relevant copyright owner.

Virus protection

We make every effort to check and test material at all stages of production. It is always wise for you to run an anti-virus programme on all material downloaded from the internet. We cannot accept any responsibility for any loss, disruption or damage to your data or your computer system that may occur while using material derived from this website.

Twitter policy

We manage our corporate Twitter account during standard business hours Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.  Our followers can expect between 40-50 tweets a week, although this may increase in special circumstances, such as updates from events.   Occasionally our Twitter account will be updated out of hours.  There may be times when Twitter is unavailable and we accept no responsibility for lack of service due to Twitter downtime.

We welcome feedback and ideas from all our followers, and endeavour to engage where possible. However, we may be unable to reply individually to messages we receive via Twitter.  We read all @replies and Direct Messages and ensure that any emerging themes or helpful suggestions are passed to relevant people in the programme.

Unfortunately, we are unable to respond to media enquiries or Freedom of Information (FoI) requests through Twitter, nor can we offer medical advice to individuals in any capacity.

If you follow @NCAresearchNHS we will not automatically follow you back. This is to discourage the use of direct messaging, avoid resource wasting spam handling and so that you can easily identify other key Twitter users that we think are relevant and who we follow. However, being followed by Northern Care Alliance Research & Innovation does not imply endorsement of any kind.
