  • Push Doctor Platform, Services and Requirements:
The Platform is owned and operated by Push Dr Limited (“Push Doctor”, “Push Dr”, “PushDr”, “our”, “us”, “we”), a company registered in England (company number 08624572).
Push Doctor is regulated by the Care Quality Commission (“CQC”) and is registered: 1-1207461908. The CQC is the independent regulator of all health and social care in England. The CQC monitors, inspects and regulates all hospitals, care homes, home-care agencies, GP practices and dental practices.
Push Doctor enables individuals in the United Kingdom (“Customer”, “Customers”) to connect in real time, via streaming video, chat, instant messaging and picture messaging, to participating doctors (all of whom are registered with the UK General Medical Council: www.gmc-uk-org the “GMC”) (the “Practitioners”, “you”) via the Platform in order to gain qualified and professional medical advice and be provided with related administrative services including referrals and sick notes. If agreed with a Practitioner, and where supported by Push Doctor, in consultation on the Platform, Customers may also purchase private prescriptions for certain medication(s) (collectively the “Services” or a “Service”).  We will provide details about restrictions on Services throughout these Terms and Conditions which you will need to read carefully, understand and adhere to when using the Platform and/or providing any part of the Services.
You expressly understand, accept and agree that when using the Platform that Push Doctor will connect you to members of the public or Customers who are seeking independent advice from qualified, appropriately-insured, medical professionals and that you are individually responsible for the medical advice and medical services that you oer to Customers via the Platform, subject always to these Terms and Conditions.

Services
We have informed Customers that the Services they receive on the Platform are not the same as those provided by the NHS or their NHS GP surgery but that Push Doctor will automatically attempt to share Customers’ medical Information with their NHS GP unless they opt out of this part of the Service or do not provide their NHS GP Surgery details. We do this to assist you with your obligations to the GMC, however, you accept, agree and understand that Push Doctor assumes no responsibility whatsoever for any of your obligations in whole or in part to the GMC or any other organisation or governing body/entity. As an independent practitioner you accept and agree that you personally remain completely and fully responsible for meeting any and all requirements placed upon you by any regulatory body, institution or other legal obligation. You understand that Customers may make a request for information in their Electronic Medical Record ("EMR") held on Push Doctor to be shared with third parties when in consultation with you and that if this request is made you should either direct them to: (i) Sign In to their Push Doctor Account and use the ‘Release Notes’ function, which is FREE; or (ii) pay, whilst you are in consultation, for a letter to be created and written by you [authorising the release of such notes/setting out the information to be shared.
Push Doctor is not a prescription provision or fulfilment service and you must only ever write, create, authorise or otherwise enable the issuing of prescriptions via the Platform under circumstances that are wholly appropriate, in line with the relevant GMC Guidance for Good Medical Practice, legal, responsible and as the result of discussion and mutual agreement between you and the Customer. Further, you will not under any circumstances issue a prescription as a result of the sole recommendation of any other person; you must only oer to issue a Prescription when, in your own professional opinion, the issuing of a prescription for certain medication is appropriate, in the best interest of the individual Customer and not in conflict with any of Push Doctor's ‘Prescription Issuing Policies and Rules’ (which are made available to you online) from time to time (including but not limited to those outlined in the policy documents ‘34.t Prescribing and Prescription Policy’ and ‘9.t Management of Medicines Policy’), which you warrant you have received, read, understood and agree always to follow when consulting and providing any of the Services on the Platform. Push Doctor makes no guarantee to Customers that you will issue or provide a prescription for any medication under any circumstances that are not legal, responsible and the result of mutual discussion and agreement with you via the Platform.

You acknowledge that Push Doctor does not guarantee a connection can be made or maintained at any time. Push Doctor may deny or refuse you access to the Platform; suspend, change or update the Platform; and/or otherwise alter the Platform it offers to Customers from time to time, at its sole discretion, without notice, but at all times subject to Push Doctor’s legal obligations, which it takes very seriously, such as regarding the secure maintenance of medical records. No connection request initiated by you, on/or via your authorised device(s) under your Push Doctor or ‘For The Grace’ Account details or under any circumstances, shall mean you are entitled to be paid any amount of money by Push Doctor or the Customer whatsoever.

You should rely on your experience and knowledge when providing Customers with advice and recognise that it is your sole responsibility to assess each situation in its entirety when providing your professional opinion to Customers.

  • Electronic Medical Records
When you use the Platform to consult with Customers you must update their Electronic Medical Record (EMR) to the fullest extent possible (this is your responsibility), creating a representational written and if possible pictorial account of your interaction with the Customer, providing details as to why certain decisions are made by you and the Customer (including but not limited to providing written documentation of specific reasons why you have issued a prescription for a certain medication). The Customer's EMR is available to them at any time and you acknowledge and accept that whatever content you add to each Customer's EMR is immediately accessible to them in its original form. You acknowledge, understand and agree that content you commit to the Platform cannot be deleted or amended, only added to, and is therefore a permanent record which will be directly released to third parties including the Customer, and that therefore the content you enter into the EMR should be done so in a considered manner, be accurate, truthful and wholly representative of your interaction. You may publish an addendum to an EMR in order to correct a mistake, however, the original record will survive and remain available alongside the addendum.
Following a consultation with a Customer you must update the EMR, ensuring that you have properly documented all information necessary. You also must complete all required fields (as signposted by the field headings and topics), which should be discussed with the Customer when in consultation.
Where the Customer is using the Platform for the first time and there is no available EMR data about that individual it is your responsibility to update the EMR, including collecting the Customer's medical history, current health conditions, symptoms, complaints, allergies and medications, and any other content you are obliged under applicable law to gather. Any information provided as part of a consultation which may be made up of video, chat messages, pictures exchanges or Snapped becomes part of a Push Doctor record when attached to the EMR. For additional information regarding use of EMR's, please see our Privacy Policy.
It is also your responsibility to confirm any third party information, such as checking information regarding a child with a person with parental responsibility for the child during a consultation, so as to ensure the accuracy of the Customer's EMR. Push Doctor reserves the right to maintain, process, review, delete or destroy all communications and materials posted or uploaded to the Platform in accordance with the Privacy Policy. Please note that you are solely responsible for complying with your legal obligation(s) as a general practitioner in relation to Customers’ medical information, which includes obtaining any consents or authorisations that may be required for the Customer's information to be shared with other healthcare providers.
Your failure properly and appropriately to create, maintain or update in a timely manner, or as required by law, a Customer's EMR is solely your responsibility and liability. You accept and agree that NO failure(s) by Push Doctor with regard to EMRs shall release you or constitute any such release from any of your obligations to create, maintain or update in a timely manner or as required by law a Customer's EMR and any such system or Platform failure by Push Doctor that prevents you from entering the content does not constitute a reason for you not to properly and appropriately create, maintain or update a Customer's EMR, you are still responsible for maintaining proper records in this instance.
  • Confidentiality
You must at all times follow the GMC's guidance with regard to confidentiality including, but not limited to, those instances in which you are required to disclose information about a Customer.
For the purposes of these Terms and Conditions, “Confidential Information” is any information that is not in the public domain or generally known about Push Doctor, its directors, ocers, shareholders, owners, employees, agents, aliates, partners, contractors or Customers, including but not limited to Push Doctor's practices, technology, systems, processes, protocols, marketing activities, strategy, financial information, Customer information, EMRs, rates of pay, legal agreements or commercial terms.

  • not to use any Confidential Information (or any part thereof) directly or indirectly to contact, approach or solicit Customers, partners, contractors, agencies, aliates, directors, ocers, shareholders or employees of Push Doctor;
  • that you will ensure that any person to whom you disclose Confidential Information is made fully aware by you in advance of your obligation under these Terms and Conditions and that each such person gives an equivalent undertaking in respect of the Confidential Information;
  • that upon written demand from us you will either return any Confidential Information you hold, including any copies, or confirm to us in writing that, save as required by law or regulation, it has been destroyed. Depending on the nature of any reports, notes or other material prepared by you or on your or their behalf which incorporate Confidential Information (Secondary Information) Push Doctor may, at its sole discretion, decide that such Secondary Information need not be returned or destroyed provided that it is kept strictly confidential; and
  • that Push Doctor does not give any warranty or make any representation as to the accuracy or otherwise of the Confidential Information.
Push Doctor is not responsible for your misuse, mistaken use or unsafe use in any way of Confidential Information.
  • Prescriptions
You must strictly adhere to all applicable UK and EU laws, regulatory requirements and the GMC's guidance with regard to prescribing, and specifically remote prescribing, and in addition to this you must at all times when using the Platform ensure that you adhere to the rules and restrictions outlined in Push Doctor's policies with regard to prescribing behaviour on the Platform (in particular ‘34.0 Prescribing and Prescription Policy’ and ‘9.t Management of Medicines Policy’).
Any prescription that you issue has a maximum number of medical items that can be included, which is seven (7) medical items. If you and a Customer agree that the Customer requires more than seven (7) medical items as a result of your consultation the Customer must agree to be charged for multiple prescriptions; if the Customer is unwilling or unable to pay for all the prescriptions you wish to provide them with as a result of your consultation it is up to you and the Customer to manage the situation appropriately. Push Doctor takes no responsibility whatsoever for any Customer’s inability to aord or receive the care (including but not limited to healthcare and medications) you are attempting to oer or prescribe.
You may provide prescriptions via the Platform if the prescription has been paid for by the Customer and you will be notified by the system during a consultation if the Customer’s purchase has been approved.  You should only ever prescribe under circumstances that are legal and at your sole discretion, using your professional judgement.
You acknowledge and accept that Push Doctor has restricted some of the medicines that you are authorised to prescribe on the Platform. There are certain medicines that should not be issued via Push Doctor, which include:
  • any medicines classed as controlled or restricted drugs/substances under The Misuse of Drugs Regulations 2001;
  • unlicensed medications;
  • sedatives or sleeping tablets;
  • strong analgesics; and
  • medications that need to be initiated by a hospital consultant specialist.
When prescribing you must complete the prescription in words and it is your sole responsibility to ensure that the data and content you enter into the system is accurate.  You must enter any prescription on the Push Doctor system within two (2) hours of the relevant consultation ending.
The prescriptions you can issue via Push Doctor are private prescriptions only; you cannot issue NHS prescriptions via the Platform. You accept that fulfilment and dispensing (or any thirdparty costs for such services) of the medicines prescribed is not under the control or influence of Push Doctor in any way.
You accept and agree that Push Doctor charges administration fees for every prescription that is issued via the Platform in accordance with the Costs (explained in these Terms & Conditions from time to time). The Customer must pay the ‘Prescription Administration Fee’ prior to a prescription being created by a Practitioner, which fee is non-refundable. Prescriptions by email are deemed to have been delivered to the Customer once the Platform marks the email containing the prescription as "correct" and "sent", including time and date stamping for Push Doctor's records, after which time Push Doctor has fulfilled its obligation to provide such a prescription and is entitled to retain the related fees.
Push Doctor is not responsible for the spam, junk or mail receipt prevention tactics of Customers’ email service providers/hosts, who may for whatever reason and outside of Push Doctor's control direct emails from us away from a Customer’s inbox. You may not reissue prescriptions without charging the applicable fee unless directed by Push Doctor to do so. Push Doctor reserves the right to present to you copy prescriptions for re-signing and if you decide to re-sign the prescription for that Customer, having reviewed their EMR, you may at our sole discretion receive a (reduced) fee for issuing this replacement prescription.
Push Doctor enables access to documents delivered via email using a pass-code, for data security reasons. Such pass-code(s) are issued by Push Doctor and only valid (in the sole opinion of Push Doctor) pass-codes will grant access to a document. Push Doctor’s pass-codes expire 30 days after their delivery and Customers will no longer be granted access to the relevant document unless they request a new code and Push Doctor, at its discretion, agrees to provide such a code (for which Push Doctor may charge reasonable administration fees).
When you oer a Customer the opportunity to acquire a prescription via the Platform then you must confirm the Customer’s preferred delivery method , to be charged at the relevant Costs at the time of selection and purchase. You must complete the prescription charging requirements on the system made available to you via the Platform in order to issue a prescription.
The Services are not available free of charge and  a Customer's ability to use the Platform, receive the Services and receive the care you wish to oer them is dependent on their having provided valid payment details, using which Push Doctor has been able to pre-authorise the relevant fees.
In the case of repeat prescriptions, we will charge Customers in accordance with our Costs from time to time for creating a repeat prescription (and for the chosen method of delivery). If for any reason payment is declined by the Customer’s card or credit provider we will be unable to create a repeat prescription for the Customer and we will notify them by email and oer them the opportunity to provide alternative payment details. You will be asked to review and authorise each repeat prescription each month of issue and will receive fee, as determined at Push Doctor’s sole discretion, for doing so.
Once created, prescriptions will be deemed to have been received by the Customer within twenty four (24) hours of being noted on their Account as ‘sent’ for prescriptions by email, within fortyeight (48) hours for those sent by First Class Post and when signed for in the case of special delivery items.
  • Information Resources (Opt-IN):

AGENCY INTRODUCTIONS
For any Practitioners introduced to Push Doctor via an Agency (being a recruitment company that has provided your details to Push Doctor), Push Doctor will: (a) pay you at the rates you have agreed with the relevant Agency; and (b) pay the Agency its commission directly. If you have an agreement with an Agency and wish to cancel that agreement or amend its terms you must do so directly with the Agency and NOT with Push Doctor. You hereby accept and agree that, regardless of any dispute you might have with any Agency, Push Doctor reserves the right at its sole discretion (and without liability) to deny your access to the Platform in the event it cannot agree terms of engagement with the Agency in question.
NON-AGENCY INTRODUCTIONS
All rates of pay herein provided for Practitioners are inclusive of any and all applicable taxes, for which Practitioners themselves remain liable.
Push Doctor operates two earning models for Practitioners:
  • Pay by Appointment (Earning Model One (1)).
By default when using the Platform you shall be operating and providing the Services using the Pay by Appointment model (Earning Model One (1)) and you will only receive payment for successfully-completed consultations that you have performed. When you are delivering the Services under Earning Model One (1) you understand and agree that your remuneration shall be calculated and governed exclusively in accordance with the following rates, calculations and rules:

For successfully-complete consultations (being all sessions commenced with Customers that are not DISRUPTED CONSULTATION (see below) and without prejudice to the fact that Customers may choose to leave any Session early), you will receive the following fees:

A Session (the first 10-minute block of a consultation) £10
A Session extension (each 10-minute block extending a Session) £8
Prescription £2.50
Letter (no more than 6 pages) £6.50
Sick Note (no more than 6 pages) £6.50
Push Doctor will pay you within 30 days of the end of the month in which you have provided such Services and you will be required to provide invoices for all fees direct to Push Doctor where you are not managed by an Agency who shall do this on your behalf..
For clarity, the price a Customer pays for a Session, session extension, prescription, letter or sick note and the amount we pay you for the same are not linked and prices and fees are at the sole discretion of Push Doctor and are subject to change from time to time.
Push Doctor reserves the right at its sole discretion to amend (including but not limited to reducing, increasing, withdrawing or extending) the Services it oers, the Practitioner fees and payment terms by providing you with 7 working days’ written notice of such a change.  If you disagree with any such amendment you may give immediate written notice of termination of your engagement.
Push Doctor (at its sole discretion) may determine a Session to have been disrupted, which may include interruptions due to Push Doctor’s suspension of the Platform at the time of the Session, a Practitioner ending a Session because the Customer is known to them or a connection being of insufficient quality (Disrupted Consultation). In such circumstances Push Doctor will ‘stop the clock’ on that Session and any remaining portion of that 10 minutes will be available to the Customer once the connection is re-established.  If a connection cannot be re-established within 10 minutes Push Doctor will automatically credit the Customer’s Account with any unused session minutes.
[In the event of a Disrupted Consultation, the pay calculation for Practitioners shall dier from the standard calculation. Practitioners payments and/or earnings for Disrupted Consultations shall without exception, subject exclusively to the determinations from time to time of Push Doctor, be determined as follows:
The total Practitioner Fees for Sessions in the Consultation (excluding Practitioner Fees for prescriptions, letters (of any kind), sick notes and/or any other additional services/products provided during the consultation) becoming due as a result of the consultation and any Sessions contained within it, shall be distributed according to the individual Practitioner's percentage of the Used Minutes (Used Minutes = minutes of a session in a consultation where a Practitioner was actually in conference directly with a Patent and not those billed for, but where a Practitioner was not in direct conference with a Patent) when calculated in context with the other Practitioners who contributed during any session in the Disrupted Consultation.]
  • Underwritten Hours Model (Earning Model Two (2)).
You must be invited (at Push Doctor’s sole discretion from time to time) to participate and benefit from the underwritten hours model.  If you are invited to operate on earning model two (2) programme then you will submit committed hours to Push Doctor for approval. These committed hours, if approved by Push Doctor in writing, shall be added to the Push Doctor system, reviewed on a weekly basis and known from time to time as Underwritten Hours.  If Push Doctor wishes to change these hours in any way after such initial approval it shall notify you in writing and, unless Push Doctor within five (5) days of contacting you receives a written response from you objecting to such change, the proposed change shall be deemed to take effect as of the date stated by Push Doctor in its notice to you. If you do not agree to any such change you will be removed from the underwritten hours system and any Services you provide after the date stated in Push Doctor’s notice to you shall be on the basis of earning model one (1).
If you are operating on the underwritten hours system your Underwritten Hours shall appear in your Account and you must dedicate such times exclusively to providing Services via the Platform, agreeing to arrive in good time for the start of the Underwritten Hours and to finish (logo) once the end of the Underwritten Hours has occurred (or, if later, the end of the last Consultation you started during the Underwritten Hours). During your Underwritten Hours you shall make yourself fully available to consult with Customers via the Platform, regardless of whether Customers are awaiting such Services or not, which means you must be logged in to the Platform, not on-call for any other commitments you may have and be ready to see patients for the full period of the Underwritten Hours.
If your committed hours have been accepted by Push Doctor and become Underwritten Hours, then Push Doctor shall underwrite your earnings for such hours at the following rates ONLY:

Push Doctor Underwritten Rates (to be calculated pro rate to the nearest 15 minutes):

£75 per hour between 9:00 to 20:00 Monday - Friday
£85 per hour between 6:00 to 8:59 and 20:01 to 24:00 Monday - Friday
£85 per hour between 6:00 to 24:00 Saturday – Sunday
For clarity  when  operating  on  Underwritten  Rates  you  shall  not receive any additional monies as  a  result  of consultations you do or do not enter and/or prescriptions, referral letters, fit notes or any other additional services you may provide via the Platform during these Underwritten Hours.  These hourly rates constitute your full payment in respect of such Services.
In consideration of your being duly available, logged on and ready to consult via the Platform during the Underwritten Hours, Push Doctor will pay you within 30 days of the end of the month in which you have provided such Services. You acknowledge that payment is subject to Push Doctor’s approval of the hours you have been duly available and during which Push Doctor, acting reasonably, agrees that you have arrived on time, been online at all times and available to see Customers, and/or in consultation with Customers, have not exited early (before the end of your Underwritten Hours) and have performed the Services to the our reasonable satisfaction (which shall be in part determined by the Customer feedback ratings).
You understand, accept and agree that if you fail to attend on time, in any part or for the entirety of your Underwritten Hours for any reason, Push Doctor may charge you a fee of £10 per appointment missed if appointments have been pre-booked by Customers during the Underwritten Hours which you failed to attend. You accept this is a fair and reasonable charge and in fact does not take into account the loss in brand value that such a failure to attend appointment times causes Push Doctor amongst its clientele and the general public, which may lead to damage to Push Doctor’s reputation.
You accept and agree that the operation of Earning Model Two (2) is at Push Doctor’s sole discretion and that Push Doctor may at its sole discretion determine which Practitioners, if any, receive access to Earning Model Two (2).
You accept and agree that Push Doctor reserves the right to remove or vary any or all of its earnings models at its sole direction, on advance notice to you.

For ANY Services, where refunds are provided:

We reserve the right to share cost of any refund with you in the event that we are refunding or crediting an amount to a Customer due in whole or in part to your actions or omissions, and should any complaint be based solely on your actions or omissions you shall be liable for the full amount of such refund, as well as any costs incurred by Push Doctor in resolving such complaint (including any goodwill payment made to the Customer).  Any such amounts may be deducted from amounts otherwise due to you pursuant to clause 20.
Pre-authorisation
Push Doctor will pre-authorise a Customer’s payment method in order to ensure that the Customer can pay for the Services requested. In the event that pre-authorisation fails, you are advised to let the Customer know their use of the Services is about to end and provide them with safety netting information. In the event that a Customer is successfully pre-authorised but there is an issue in collecting the funds owed by that Customer, you hereby authorise Push Doctor to extend its payment terms to you in respect of the fee for the relevant Service, which fee shall become payable without undue delay when Push Doctor receives the cleared funds from the Customer in question.
Payment procedures
Any and all fees due to Practitioners will be paid to the holder of your Account using the payment details therein provided.  You are solely responsible for ensuring such details are correct at all times and Push Doctor accepts no liability for any lost income as a result of incorrect payment details being provided.  
You acknowledge that, as described above, Push Doctor reserves the right to vary or extend its payment terms to you in certain circumstances.  If any payment has not been made within seven (7) days of its due date for payment (as set out herein or as otherwise notified to you by Push Doctor), such unpaid balance due to you from Push Doctor shall accrue at a rate of 3% per annum above HSBC’s lending rate from time to time, which the parties hereby agree shall constitute a substantial remedy in the circumstances.  
You understand that your Account may be suspended or cancelled if your Account details are not valid or up-to-date (as determined by Push Doctor). Failure by you to provide Push Doctor with valid payment Information may result in reasonable administration charges being levied by Push Doctor against your Account for administrative work in resolving such problems.
Push Doctor makes payment by electronic bank transfer only to UK-based accounts, which can and have been validated by Push Doctor.
Push Doctor does not GUARANTEE Customers’ availability:
You accept that under no circumstances does your registration on, logging in to or use of the Platform in any way constitute a warranty by Push Doctor that we will provide you with access to Customers at any given time, or that we guarantee any minimum volume of Customers from time to time.  Accordingly, Push Doctor does not guarantee any level of earnings in connection with your use of the Platform.
You accept that Push Doctor is under no obligation whatsoever to market its Platform in any territory for any given time period or using any marketing methods. If Push Doctor does market the Platform there is no guarantee that such activity will be successful in attracting Customers.
  • Push Doctor waiting time & other time estimates:
This clause refers to situations in which Customers seek consultations to start as soon as possible, not where Sessions are booked in advance.
The waiting time and all other time estimates provided and/or published on the Platform are based on our system’s best estimates having reviewed live activity and usage statistics and you accept that the waiting time and all other time estimates do not guarantee provision of the Services, or that a connection with a Customer will be made within certain parameters, within a given time period or at all. Practitioners accept that Push Doctor will not (save pursuant to Earning Model Two) make payment in respect of waiting times and shall not be liable for any other time estimates being inaccurate.  
Session times are provided as a guide only and do not guarantee that provision of the Services, or a connection with a Customer, will be made within certain parameters or at all.
  • Force Majeure:
Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, Push Doctor shall not be in breach of these Terms and Conditions nor liable for delay in performing, or failure to perform, any of its obligations hereunder if such delay or failure results from circumstances or causes beyond its reasonable control, including but not limited to any act of God; act of governmental authority; act of public enemy; war; severe weather conditions; breakdown or failure of third party network or communications equipment. If the period of delay or non-performance continues for four (4) weeks, either party may terminate this agreement by giving no less than seven (7) days’ written notice to the other party.
  • No Third Party Rights:
Unless expressly stated in these Terms and Conditions (which shall include, without limitation, the right of Push Doctor’s Directors, employees, shareholders and agents to be indemnified in specified circumstances), nothing herein is intended to confer any rights or remedies under on any persons other than you and Push Doctor and no third party shall be entitled to enforce any terms hereunder.
