A helping hand in emergencies

The healthdirect app can be used in emergency situations. It will display latitude and longitude coordinates which you can relay to emergency service operators when you don’t know exactly where you are.

Great health app! I have used this service via the internet platform for quite a few months now. I have now jumped on the new app. Having multiple chronic medical conditions, coupled with severe disabilities, now living alone, it is very reassuring knowing that whatever health service I need, or just for advice at whatever hour of the day or night, 7 days, it's all a few key strokes away, Australia-wide — Well done!
