PRESCRIPTIONS

Our NHS-trained GPs can issue prescriptions following an online video consultation


We're open from 8am - 8pm all weekendClock animation

Just like in a physical consultation, the 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 for example if you have a cough.

Where medication is needed for you to get better, the GP can issue a prescription.

What happens next?

After the consultation, you’ll be asked to enter a postcode close to where you'd want want to collect your medication.

Our team will use this to find a convenient pharmacy to send your prescription to.

You can get one hour collection of your prescription for £2.95.

If you're not in a hurry, we'll still (in almost all cases)  make sure your prescription is available the same day.

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.

We currently don't offer a repeat prescription service, but we can issue prescriptions for regular medication.

Our highest priority is to provide safe care to our patients. This means that we are unable to prescribe certain medications, including;

  • Controlled medication, such as strong painkillers, anxiolytics, sedatives and hypnotics
  • Medication that requires specialist prescribing and monitoring
  • Medication that needs to be administered by injection (with the exception of life-saving or life-preserving purposes, like an EpiPen)

Some common medications we get asked about, that we can’t prescribe, includes:

  • Diazepam
  • Tramadol
  • Gabapentin
  • Pregabalin
  • Zopiclone
  • Codeine
  • Sleeping tablets
  • PEP (Post Exposure Prophylaxis for HIV treatment)

Our doctors will always have your best interest in mind and recommend the treatment that they think is the most suitable. Please note that all our prescriptions are issued at the consulting doctor's discretion.

Emily got a prescription from Push Doctor

Here, one of our patients describes how it was to see a doctor online.


She talked to the GP about her symptoms, and was prescribed medication that was sent to her local pharmacy.


She even had a second consultation to get her prescription refilled again.
