Where necessary, for each question, select the answer that is most applicable to you. Your responses will be completely anonymous and will not be stored by NHS local or any other third parties. Your browser may store your answers, but it is possible to override these settings, so you may wish to manually clear your cache after use.

Any response and/or guidance you receive is only an indication based on your answers. The NHS local site does not provide any medical or diagnostic services so you should always check with a health professional if you have any concerns about your health.

If you have any concerns you should always visit your GP or health professional.
