Healthfriends offers to our users the opportunity to put questions to consultants, clinicians and wellbeing experts in order to obtain information and support. Please read and take note of the following important points:

- Responses from clinicians should be used as an adjunct to the care given by your doctor, nurse or other clinician and should be discussed with them before you take any action.

- Our clinicians and experts do not have access to your full medical history and are not in a position to, and do not, provide a specific opinion or advice about your particular case or healthcare need.

- Before you make any changes to your treatment or care please discuss them with your GP.

Questions will be responded to within two working days on most occasions. If our clinician is on leave or not able to respond within this time a notice will be placed at the bottom of the clinician's profile.
