How content is produced and included

Material on this site is mainly written and produced in-house by the PAPAA site editorial team. Other content is sourced from multiple authors. This is usually through commissioned work or via media and news alerts.

Quality and accuracy of material is important to PAPAA and the standard by which we produce information is based on the Information Standard scheme that was developed by the Department of Health and administered by NHS England. The scheme ended on 31 July 2019.

As a former member organisation of the scheme, we have committed to continue to uphold the principals of the scheme and produce material that is clear, accurate, evidence-based, up-to-date and easy to use, which allows people, patients and communities to become better informed and more involved in their health and care. We use a robust information production process based on best practice to ensure that information we produce meets the needs of the user.

Content which is from an external source may be unaccredited to an individual, as it may have been provided on behalf an organisation or institution. In this case we endeavour to provide that source within the material.

When an individual provides copy for inclusion, if approved for use, the individual can withhold their identity, this particularly applies to personal stories.  

Selection of material and imagery is made by the editorial team and is based on the needs of those with whom PAPAA interacts and also reflects emerging changes to healthcare.

Commercial content, such as adverts or advertorials are not included or accepted. There is no paid to be included content on this site.  

Whether to include material that is solicited or unsolicited is the decision of the editorial team, who reserve the right not to enter into discussion about such decisions.  

The current editorial team is David Chandler, Julie Chandler and Caroline Marven, who are advised with medical input from Dr David Ashton.
