The SAAD Score contains general advice and guidance in relation to COVID-19 risk. This should not be taken as medical advice nor should it replace medical advice from medical professionals.


No warranties


The advice and guidance in the SAAD Score is provided without any express or implied representations or warranties. This includes, but is not limited to, the accuracy and relevance of any information in relation to BAME risk during the COVID-19 pandemic.

  1. is factually correct, precise, comprehensive, up-to-date or not-misleading; or
  2. will always be available, or available at all



Medical advice


Whilst using the SAAD Score it is vitally important you do not depend upon the general advice and guidance in relation to COVID-19 risk as a substitute to actual medical advice from professionals such as your doctor or alternative healthcare providers.


Any further queries related to your COVID-19 risk, health or other related or relevant matters should be directed to your medical practitioner, occupational health team or other healthcare provider.


Any concern relating to your physical, psychological or other health needs must be bought to the attention of your medical practitioner or other healthcare provider without delay.


We strongly advise all users and non-users of the SAAD Score never to cease medical treatments, never ignore medical treatments or advice, and never delay bringing to the attention of your medical practitioner or other healthcare provider any issue related to your health, due to anything you may read on our website.


Interactive features


As users will be able to interact with the authors on the website to a certain extent, it is imperative users understand that due to this limited type of interaction, advice and guidance in relation to COVID-19 risk may be only partial, may contain omissions and oversights, and could even be inaccurate or erroneous.


Whilst using the SAAD Score, all advice and guidance in relation to COVID-19 risk must be strictly treated as general advice and as a guide only. It is not designed to replace any medical advice from professionals such as your doctor or alternative healthcare provider. Therefore the advice and guidance provided may require further clarification from an independent source for verification purposes.
