The healthdirect Symptom checker guides you to the appropriate healthcare action: if you need to see a doctor or go to your nearest hospital or emergency department. It helps you understand symptoms and possible signs of illness, causes and complications.
With Symptom checker you can find out:
- what to do – advice on the next healthcare steps, whether it’s self-care, talking to a health professional, going to a hospital or calling triple zero (000)
- where to go – information on local healthcare services appropriate to the “what to do” advice
- more about your symptoms – links to further information about their symptoms, and possible causes, from trusted Australian healthcare organisations.
If you think you have a medical emergency, immediately call your doctor or dial triple zero (000).
