Description

This app provides trusted health information, sourced from Australia's leading health organisations. Users can check their symptoms using a Symptom Checker Tool, look up information on a range of medications and use the Australia-wide directory to find a health service. The app can also be used in emergency situations, providing the latitude and longitude coordinates that the user can tell emergency services if they don't know where they are.
