Important information before you use the symptom checker
Our Website and App allow you to input your symptoms and other information and receive medically safe information about specific conditions to help you decide on what to do next and whether you need to see a doctor. Our products and services can’t be used to get information about babies, children under the age of 16, pregnant women, people who are immunosuppressed or on immunosuppressive treatment, and people with complex or long-term conditions. However, if you’re generally healthy and don’t have any ongoing or rare medical conditions, we can help you spot less serious conditions you can usually manage yourself.
We are not a real-life doctor, which means we can’t:
- Consider all the information a doctor can when interacting with you;
Identify every possible condition or symptom you may have; and
Always understand the information you provide
We often give suggestions about what you can do next, but you should only act on these if you think it’s appropriate for you to do so. Always visit a doctor if:
You’re in doubt
Your symptoms get worse; or
Your symptoms don’t improve
If your situation feels serious, always call the emergency services.
Remember, always consult with your doctor before making medical decisions based on information provided by our Website and App.
NowPatient is not liable for any decisions, acts, or omissions you make. The Symptoms Checker is solely for supporting users in their decision as to whether there is a need to see a healthcare professional and it is not a diagnostic tool. Reliance on information provided by the Symptoms Checker is solely at your own risk and we hereby disclaim any and all express, implied, or statutory warranties to the fullest extent permissible by law. The Symptoms Checker is not a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, therapy, or treatment and you should never rely on or make health or well-being decisions based on information provided by the Symptoms Checker without first consulting an appropriate health professional.
