Push Doctor work in partnership with NHS practices, PCNs and CCGs across the country to provide the platform and technology to allow safe and secure video consultations with NHS GPs. Our partnership approach empowers patients and clinicians 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 does Push Doctor work? Patients register online or receive an invite SMS sent out by their 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.
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.
We want to make healthcare more accessible and convenient for patients and clinicians alike. Patients being able to book an appointment online, or through our app, and be seen by an online doctor whenever they feel comfortable, whenever suits them – fundamentally changing our relationship with healthcare. We want to go even further, though.
We are a company united and energised around a mission and vision to get patients to the right care, quicker than before, reducing waiting times, improving recovery periods and cutting GPs' triaging workload, giving them more time to spend with patients that need it.
This is the future of healthcare, and it's available right now.
