All of our Terms of Service are for all platforms offering this site.
PointNurse enables you to communicate with a healthcare professional for the purpose of obtaining information, advice or any other input. PointNurse does not hire the healthcare professionals. We carefully screen our healthcare professional applicants and insist on evidence of the applicant's credentials.
