I have a site in the health topic so I thought I need to put a medical disclaimer to avoid getting into any legal troubles.

I already have a terms and conditions page that says

"You assume total responsibility and risk for your use of the site and the internet. "mywebsite" shall not be liable for any cost or damage arising either directly or indirectly from any such transaction. It is solely your responsibility to evaluate the accuracy, completeness and usefulness of all opinions, advice, services, merchandise and other information provided through the service or on the internet generally. "mywebsite" does not warrant that the service will be uninterrupted or error-free or that defects in the service will be corrected.

In no event will "mywebsite" be liable for (i) any incidental, consequential, or indirect damages (including, but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, business interruption, loss of programs or information, and the like) arising out of the use of or inability to use the service"

I'm just wondering if its necessary to included another medical disclaimer at the footer of every page? something like "The content and material on this website is for informational purposes only and not to be a substitute for medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment provided by a qualified physician or other health care provider."

or is the terms and conditions thing good enough? I dont want to clutter my page with too much disclosure stuff, but Im not sure if the terms and conditions is clear enough to protect me. it doesnt specifically say anything about not taking my material as medical advice. I just dont know, can someone tell me

I would absolutely include the medical disclaimer if your site gives health or medical advice. Your suggestion looks perfect.
