Links policy

How links are chosen for the DHCSTC website

The DHCSTC website ( includes links to external (non-DHCSTC) websites. We select links that are editorially relevant to the content they are linking from and are suitable for the likely audience.​

These links are included for a number of reasons, including:

  • For further relevant information or other key source material;
  • For background information; and
  • For useful practical information.

We do not link to external sites in return for cash, services or any other consideration in kind.

The content contributors and authors select links and evaluate websites on the basis of editorial relevance.

Links to external websites

External links are selected and reviewed when the content page is published. However, DHCSTC is not responsible for the content of external websites. This is because:

  • DHCSTC does not produce them or maintain/update them;
  • DHCSTC cannot change them; and
  • They can be changed without DHCSTC's knowledge or agreement.

Some of our external links may be to websites which also offer commercial services, such as online purchases.

The inclusion of a link to an external website from any DHCSTC content page should not be understood to be an endorsement of that website or the site's owners (or their products/services).​
