Symptom Checker

Not sure if you need a doctor? The Symptom Checker can help you decide what to do next.


  • The Symptom Checker advises if you should see a doctor or care for yourself at home.
  • It can also help you find healthcare providers.
  • It is designed for people in Australia.
  • The data that you share with us is safe, secure and unidentified.
  • The Symptom Checker cannot give you a diagnosis and is not a substitute for professional healthcare.

How to use it

  • Answer questions about your symptoms — this takes an average of 6 minutes.
  • You need to answer each question unless it's marked as optional.
