Safe - First Aid Forum Misuse Read Before Posting Or We Won't Answer Your Questions!

Ok everyone, I'm sorry to have to be posting this but we have been having an increase in issues with the FAF recently. This thread is not directed at anyone specifically, but as a general reminder to all FA users.

The FAF is something that we fought hard to get when RYL V3 was being designed. This is the forum that holds the most liability to RYL and Harley. Because of this we have to be really careful about how things go here.

This forum is here for SI, ED, OD and other questions related to RYLs main mission of helping people with Mental Health problems. We are not here as a replacement for your GP, or A&E or a doctor your GP may refer you to.

More and more people have been posting "General Medical" questions asking for a diagnosis for symptoms, asking for a second opinion to something their doctor has said, asking for advice on how to take their medications, and asking for interpretation to test results, among other things.


These questions are not what RYL First Aid was created to answer. Questions like these need to be answered by your doctor.



Appropriate FA topics


Any wound care questions, including questions on how to dress a wound


Any questions about wound infections


ED questions


Overdose questions


Questions like "I have xxxxx symptom, do i need to see a doctor later or go to A&E now"



Topics that need to be addressed by your GP


Test results


Questions about any recent diagnosis


Questions about medication doses


How to treat something your GP has diagnosed



The examples listed above are not rules, but guidelines as to what you can post here versus what you should go straight to your GP with.




We do understand that it is often easier to just ask us here, but without knowing your past medical information we can not give you definitive answers. It is ok to ask general medical questions in the FAF, but we ask that people please be cautious that they are not over using the FAF instead of seeing a doctor.




There has also been an increase of people posting multiple threads within a short amount of time. If you have an ongoing problem that you need advice for, such as an infected wound, please keep all questions to one thread in order to reduce the number of threads on the first page of FA, and that way if a different advisor answers your question they can easily look through the thread and see what you have already been told.




We also want to remind everyone to look at the First Aid Articles before posting. Located with the articles are links and phone numbers we also feel would be helpful to the FA users. More articles will be added all the time, so check back often!






Thank you,

The First Aid Team :flower:

Well it breaks my heart to see you this way,
The beauty in life, where's it gone?
And somebody told me you were doing okay,
Somehow I guess they were wrong.

If anyone wants to PM us about it you should PM either myself or Aidey. You can post general queries in this thread but specific problems with it are best dealt with via PMs

Fantastic reminder Aidey. I would hate if something went wrong and RYL was shut down because of it. We all need this reminder.
