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 book my appointment?
When you get an invite to the service, you’ll be able to register an account with us online.You can book online appointments in our app or on the website. Once it’s time for your consultation, you’ll enter our online waiting room, and the doctor will see you as soon as possible.

Collect your prescription and medication from the pharmacy, just as you would after a regular appointment.
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.
Do I need to de-register from my GP to use Push Doctor?
Absolutely not. Push Doctor is a service which supplements your current GP service to give you better access to amazing healthcare, when you need it. By using the service you won't be de-registering from your GP and will still have access to a physical appointment should you need one.
Who are the doctors?
All of our UK GPs are trained in the NHS and registered with the General Medical Council (GMC), the organisation responsible for overseeing medical practitioners in the UK.
They’re experienced in treating a wide range of conditions, and can help with almost everything your regular GP could in a physical surgery.
What if I need to see a doctor in person?
The online video consultation service through Push Doctor is an addition to your GP services you’re already offered at your surgery.
This means that you'll still be able to see your regular doctor in person. To do this, you just book in as normal.
Am I eligible for Push Doctor?
Our Push Doctor product is currently available to patients who are registered with selected partnership surgeries.
Keep an eye out though as we will be rolling this out to further surgeries across the UK in the coming months.
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.
