    :nurse:Welcome to Health!:nurse:

    If you are looking for advice on how to stay healthy, share your health struggles and ask about your health problems.

    Don't forget that it's always best to see a GP!

    :doctor:

    Thank you

    With medical advice, the guidance for the forum is outlined below:

    "This forum is for advice, suggestions and insight only. We aren't health professionals and therefore all advice should not be considered professional or reliable. Do not hesitate to see a professional, go to A&E or telephone NHS direct (111 except in these areas where you shall call 0845 46 47, or if you are in Scotland you should call NHS 24 on 08454 24 24 24). NHS Direct/ NHS 24 is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week if you need urgent medical advice."


    Does that help at all?

    It does. So just to clarify, posts like "sounds like you might just have a cold. See how you get on" or "I've tried that medication and it made me feel [this way]" are disallowed?

    I think saying 'sounds like you have a cold, see how you get on' is absolutely fine, the guidance is there to remind the member to see a doctor if it needs medical attention but suggesting what it sounds like is fine

    It should be ok to share how medicines have made you feel, I might just add in a bit to the guidance to advise people that everyone responds differently to medications however!

    So suggestions are fine as long as you disclaim you lack medical authority and urge them to see a Dr if symptoms worsen?

    It's fine to just make suggestions, in an ideal world it would be a good idea to suggest they see a doctor if it sounds like something a GP would be needed for

    I'm just creating a fresh new page for the H&R guidelines so I will try and create some more clarity around this
