What happens in the online video consultation?
Just like in a physical consultation, the online doctor will discuss your symptoms. As it's a video consultation, they can also take a look at any affected areas, or listen out for symptoms. Where medication is needed for you to get better, the GP can issue a prescription.
How do I get a prescription?
Create an account or sign into your existing account, then book an appointment on a day and time to suit you.Get the help and advice you need
Ask all of the questions on your mind, and if appropriate, your GP will prescribe medication during your consultation.Pick up from your local pharmacy
Collect your prescription and medication from your designated pharmacy the very same day, sometimes even within the hour.
What do I need to do at the pharmacy?
Let the pharmacist know you’re picking up a private prescription from Push Doctor.
As your prescription has been issued privately, you’ll need to pay for your medication. However, this cost is often cheaper than an NHS prescription.
What does sharing medical records with my GP do?
This account option determines whether or not our doctors are able to share their notes, or any returned letters or test results, with offline doctors to continue your care.
About Push Doctor
Push Doctor are working in partnership with NHS practices across the country to provide video appointments with NHS GPs to patients. Our partnership approach empowers patients and the NHS to leverage the benefits of our digital solution and our technology fully integrates with NHS clinical systems to ensure a continuity of patient safety and care. Patients do not need to de-register from their practice and will remain with their trusted family GP.
So how do Push Doctor virtual locums work? Patients register online or receive an invite SMS sent out by your surgery. From there, appointments are booked directly through the Push Doctor app. We connect your patient with a doctor digitally via video with full access to NHS records (exactly as a locum would). Video consultations are just like face-to-face consultations. Our NHS-trained GPs will still discuss patients' symptoms, they can still look at affected areas with the device's camera, listen out for telltale signs using the microphone, and provide prescriptions, referral letters and fit notes when necessary.
Some of the conditions we treat most frequently include mental health and skin conditions, infections, joint pain and common complaints like colds, flu, asthma, tonsillitis, sinusitis and gastroenteritis and irritable bowel syndrome.
Our service is regulated by the Care Quality Commission, who awarded us the UK's first digital healthcare 'good' rating in our last inspection. Every one of our doctors is an NHS' 'Top Performer', registered with the General Medical Council, so you can never be in doubt that you are receiving the best possible care.
This is the future of healthcare, and it's available right now.
