The healthdirect app combines three trusted tools to help Australians make health decisions safely, quickly, and easily.

Users can check their symptoms, search for trusted health information, and find a health service at the touch of a button. There is no other Australian app that offers this unique combination of tools.

  • Symptom checking capability

Guides people through a set of questions to help them better understand their symptoms and receive personalised advice on what to do next, whether its self-care, see a GP or visit another health service. Read more information about the Symptom Checker.

  • Find a health service

At those times when you cannot see your GP, you can access the National Health Services Directory to find the closest health service that meets your needs and directions to reach it. Patients can access details about local health services such as opening hours, availability in the after-hours period and bulkbilling options.

  • Search for trusted information

Instant access to information on thousands of health information topics sourced from Australia’s leading health organisations.

The app is available from the Apple App Store and from Google play
