Methodology
Services may be searched in a particular postcode range, a town or suburb, and if necessary a search may be refined to include extra features such as an extended hours service or a practice which has a female practitioner available.

QFinder will find the closest location for the service required and provide the user with detailed information about:
- where the service is (with mapping included) 
- contact details of the service 
- what times the service can be accessed 
- whether the building, parking and toilets are accessible to those with mobility or sensory issues 
- whether appointments and practitioner referrals are necessary 
- if there are language interpretation services available 
- if there are eligibility criteria to access the service 
- if the service is free or there are fees or charges.
