who understands medical terms?
Access is often thought of physical or phone access
but the first barrier can be lack of understanding and fear to show it

A lot of online resources are not upto date or complete

symptoms ability capacity open
we want to be able to search by things that make sense to use non medics
symptoms, abilities (of the clinic or person), open spots for a family GP, opening times

We want to use common words to help people search
get up to date information
