Video

Photos

Use the camera on your phone, tablet or laptop to photograph visible symptoms, either before or during the consultation.

Rapport

Touch

The clinician may ask you to feel or move the body part you are concerned about to help confirm their diagnosis.

How to create an account

We’re here to help!

Just like in a physical consultation, the online clinician 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. Our physiotherapists cannot prescribe you medication.

Our specialist musculoskeletal physiotherapists will be able to assess, diagnose and provide information on appropriate individualised rehabilitation and management through a video consultation.

Once you have signed up for an account, 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.

Once you have consulted with a GP over video they will advise if you need medication. They will then generate a prescription and send this to your local pharmacy for you to collect. You'll be notified when it is ready for you.

By agreeing to share your records, notes made in your consultation will be available to GP's at your local surgery.

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.

The online video consultation service through Push Doctor is in addition to the 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.
