Push Doctor may vary charges for any Services at any time, and changes will be notified to you in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.
You expressly understand, accept and agree that when using the Platform the Practitioners are independent medical professionals that are individually responsible for the medical advice they offer to you via the Platform.
By using the Platform you understand and accept that the Services are not the same those provided by the NHS or your NHS GP surgery (if you are registered with an NHS Surgery). Push Doctor is a connective Platform that enables Customers to consult with Practitioners on a private and self-pay basis from time to time. Push Doctor will automatically share your medical information with your NHS GP unless you opt out of this part of the Service; we automatically opt you in to comply with the requirements of the GMC. You will be presented with your options regarding medical record sharing before you start your first consultation on the Platform and the choice to share your medical records is entirely yours.

To use Push Doctor you are required to have an active Internet connection with 6mbps of available bandwidth, for the best quality connection we recommend a minimum of 4mbps available bandwidth.
Although 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; prevent certain Practitioners from using 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.
Consultation times are subject to change and are only made available to Customers at the sole discretion of Push Doctor. If you require medical advice and Push Doctor is inaccessible or there are no appointments available to suit you; you miss an appointment you have made or start a connection that fails; or attend an appointment that has been cancelled or when a Practitioner is not available, you understand and agree that it is your sole responsibility to seek appropriate alternative medical advice from alternative service providers, which may include the NHS or your GP practice if you are registered with one.
Furthermore, Push Doctor and the Practitioners are not responsible for any legal prescriptions provided to you that legal UK Pharmacies refuse to dispense. You accept that it remains an individual Pharmacist’s right to refuse to
2. INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE

You warrant without exception that any information you provide is honest, legitimate and an accurate representation of your situation as you see it. With regard to
You understand and accept that you may choose to give access only to certain portions of your medical information, but that by doing so this may interfere with the care you receive from Practitioners and/or your care generally.
You understand and agree that you may NOT under any circumstances amend, alter or tamper with the contents of any documents created on the Platform and/or issued to you via the Platform.
At any time you may be notified that information is available for your review that is considered private and possibly time-sensitive, so you should consider ease of access when determining which email address you use for your Account.
You are obliged to advise us of the following as soon as reasonably possible:
3. GPs YOU MAY KNOW
It is not our intention to connect Customers with Practitioners who are also working at the NHS GP practice where the Customer may currently be registered. We will use some of the information that you have provided to create connection filters and blockers but in the unlikely event that you are connected with a Practitioner you know or recognise to be a GP working at an NHS practice at which you are registered, you accept and agree immediately to inform the Practitioner you know them and to ask them to “disrupt” your connection (see clause 30). The Practitioner is able to disrupt your connection to them and you will be given credits enabling you to use the funds you have committed to
We charge for consultations in 10-MINUTE BLOCKS, which we call Sessions. You understand and accept that you may only ever purchase a complete Session and not individual minutes and that using one (1) second of time in a Session is the same as using all of it, so you will be charged accordingly. You agree and accept that you will not be entitled to any rebate, refund or compensation as a result of your not using the full length of time available in a Session, nor shall you be due any rebate, refund or compensation of any kind if you fail to prevent the start of a new Session (as explained below) by exiting the video-surgery using the EXIT button provided. You accept that the EXIT button provided by Push Doctor on the Platform is clearly-placed, appropriately-signposted and understood by you to be used to EXIT and prevent charges when you so require.

Subject to availability, you can choose to book a number of Sessions in advance, which we refer to as an Appointment. After you have requested an Appointment you will be sent written confirmation of the Appointment in the form of an email; if you do not receive such confirmation within 24 hours of requesting your Appointment (or, if sooner, within 4 hours of the start of your intended Appointment) please Contact Us to check we have received your booking request.
Push Doctor will advise you by email as soon as possible if it has to amend, change or cancel any Session that you have booked.
You understand and accept there is no guarantee whatsoever that you will be issued or provided with a prescription for any medication and acknowledge that the issuing of any prescription is at the sole discretion of the consulting Practitioner, subject to the limitations applied by Push Doctor’s medical team from time to time.
You will be charged the current costs for a prescription, which may contain no more than the maximum (7) number of medical items. If you agree with your Practitioner you need more than the maximum number of medical items and the Practitioner is willing to write you multiple prescriptions you will be required to purchase multiple prescriptions up to the number you require.
The prescriptions available via Push Doctor are private prescriptions only (not NHS prescriptions). You accept that private prescriptions are fulfilled at a charge, unique to the fulfilling pharmacy, which is not under the control of Push Doctor or the Practitioners. It is your choice as to whether you have any prescription fulfilled and at what cost. Any reference to a ‘prescription’ shall be deemed to apply to repeat prescriptions where applicable.
Any prescription that you receive via the Push Doctor platform is only valid for use at legal UK pharmacies. You understand and agree that any prescriptions you acquire via the Platform are solely for your personal use. Furthermore, you agree carefully to read all information provided to you and to follow the instructions provided by the Practitioner(s), on the prescription(s) itself (the label applied by the pharmacy) or otherwise, prior to taking any of the prescribed medicines. You also hereby agree to contact a Practitioner, another doctor or a pharmacist if you have any questions or do not fully understand the reasons you have been prescribed any medication or the instructions related to the medication.
Please be aware that Push Doctor’s medical team has restricted some of the medicines that Practitioners may prescribe on the Platform. There are certain medicines that will not be issued by Practitioners in any circumstances, which include:

You will be charged the current fee (see Costs) for a Letter (including but not limited to referral letters), which may be no longer than six (6) A4 letter single-sided pages in length and subject to the spacing and layout requirements of Push Doctor at its sole discretion. If you agree with your Practitioner you need a longer letter and the Practitioner is willing to write this
By accepting this charge you confirm that you have read the above and accept that we can not be held responsible either financially or medically if your referral is declined. You also confirm that you have given a full and accurate history to your doctor and have not with held any information that you feel may be relevant to your referral or may affect the chance your referral may be accepted.
You will be charged the current Price for a sick note, which may be no longer than six (6) A4 Letter single-sided pages in length and subject to the spacing and layout requirements of Push Doctor at its sole discretion. If you agree with your Practitioner you need a longer sick note and the Practitioner is willing to write this longer sick note, you will be required to pay charges in respect of the equivalent number of standard sick notes.
PURCHASE OF PRESCRIPTIONS,
You may only purchase a prescription, letter or sick note during a live Session with a Practitioner. You will be asked, by way of a system message, to accept or decline the purchase, which will include an on-screen cost for the prescription, letter or sick note. If you accept by way of clicking/tapping the ACCEPT button we will take this as
If you click/tap ACCEPT and your card is declined you will not be able to purchase the prescription, letter or sick note; if you wish to make the purchase using another payment method, you accept that you will be required to provide new payment details in your Account following the consultation in question and then arrange a new consultation to discuss your situation with a Practitioner.

You can use our Services in two different ways:
(1) Pay As You Go – where you choose to pay on a per appointment basis; and
(2) Member – where you choose to purchase an annual twelve (12) month subscription to our Services (“Membership”)
PAY AS YOU GO
Where you choose to Pay As You Go, you will be required to purchase Appointments on a per Appointment Basis. The cost of an Appointment is set out on the Website and may vary from time to time.
Where you can choose to purchase Membership, you will be required to pay an annual Membership fee. In return, you will be entitled to a discount on the total cost of each Appointment that you book with us and exclusive access to offers, discounts and other features that may be of interest to you. Further details about our Membership package (as may be varied from time to time) can be found on the Website.
We will try to process your Membership promptly, but we do not guarantee that your Membership will be activated by any specified time. By submitting your payment and other Membership details, you are making an offer to us to purchase Membership. Your offer will only be accepted by us and a contract formed when we have successfully verified your details and taken payment of the annual Membership fee or the first monthly payment (as applicable). You agree that your Membership will begin as soon as we send you the email confirming your Membership. We reserve the right to reject any offer in our discretion, for any or no reason.
MEMBERSHIP FEE AND PAYMENT TERMS
The amount of the Membership fee is as set out on our Website. The amount of the annual Membership fee may either be paid in one upfront lump sum payment (“annual fee”) for the entire year (“Membership Period”) or in twelve equal monthly payments (“monthly payments”) during the Membership Period.
You agree to pay the Membership fee at the rate notified to you at the time you take out your Membership. We may modify the price of any Membership fee from time to time, but any change to the Membership fee will not apply during your current Membership Period. We will always inform you by way of email if the Membership fee will be increased in your next renewal period and you can always choose not to renew your Membership at the end of your current Membership Period.
Where you choose to make monthly payments, each monthly payment will automatically be charged to your nominated debit or credit card without notification each month during the Membership Period.
In the event that any payment cannot be taken from your nominated debit or credit card, we have the right to suspend your Membership until the relevant payment has been received and the payment terms set out in clause 5 will apply. In the event of a failed payment, a reminder will be sent to you via the email address that you gave to us at the time of registration. We will attempt to take the relevant payment 24 hours after the reminder email and if it fails again, another reminder email will be sent to you. A third and final reminder email will be sent to you 24 hours after this and if payment fails for a third time, your Membership will be cancelled.
Your Membership will automatically renew at the end of each Membership Period for a further twelve (12) month period. We will send you a reminder by email a reasonable time prior to the end of your current Membership Period and will give you an opportunity to tell us (no later than 30 days before your current Membership Period is due to expire) if you do not want your Membership to automatically renew. Also, you can turn off automatic renewal at any time (so long as this is no later than 30 days before your current Membership Period is due to expire), through your account on the Website.
If you do not turn off automatic renewal or otherwise notify us that you do not want your Membership to be renewed in accordance with the above clause, we will automatically renew your Membership at the end of the Membership Period. Upon renewal, we will charge the then current Membership fee using the same card or other payment method that you previously used. Unless you tell us otherwise no later than 30 days before your current Membership is due to expire, we will assume that you want to pay for your renewed Membership fee in the same way that you have paid previously (i.e. annual fee or monthly payments) and we will take payment accordingly.
STATUTORY 14 DAY “COOLING-OFF” PERIOD
Where you purchase services online, you have a statutory right to cancel your order within fourteen (14) days after the day on which the contract is entered into (“Cooling-Off Period”) without giving any reason.
By registering for Membership, you are agreeing that we can start to provide the benefits of the Membership services (including your entitlement to discounted Appointments) to you during the Cooling-Off Period.
If you cancel during the Cooling-Off Period and you have not booked any Appointments at the time of your cancellation, then we will give you a full refund of the annual fee or monthly payment (as applicable) that you have paid.
If you cancel during the Cooling-Off Period and you have booked/received Appointments at the time of your cancellation, then you will be required to pay for the services that you have received up to the date of cancellation. As such:
(i) we will give you a full refund of the annual fee or monthly payment (as applicable) that you have paid; but
(ii) you will be obliged to pay for the Appointments you have booked/received up to the date of cancellation and you will be charged for such Appointments at the standard Pay As You Go rate (as set out on the Website). We reserve the right to set off any amount payable to us in respect of such Appointments against any refund that we are due to make under paragraph (i) above. You acknowledge and agree that we shall be entitled to take payment (from your nominated debit or credit card) for the total amount of any outstanding fees which are due in respect of any Appointments under this paragraph (ii).
OTHER CANCELLATION RIGHTS
Subject to your statutory rights (as described above), you can cancel your Membership at any time during the Membership Period, but (after the Cooling-Off Period) you will not be entitled to a refund of the Membership fee (annual fee or monthly payments). If you cancel your Membership during a current Membership Period and you are making monthly payments, we shall be entitled to take payment (from your nominated debit or credit card) for the total amount of any outstanding monthly payments which are due in respect of the remaining Membership Period (up to a total of the applicable Membership fee for the relevant year).
Nothing in this section affects your legal rights.
If you would like to cancel your Membership, please visit our helpful FAQs where instructions on cancellation can be found, as well as links to other helpful topics.
FAIR USAGE POLICY
Each Appointment should be limited to 20 minutes (i.e. one 10 minute Appointment plus one 10 minute Additional Session).
Our Fair Usage Policy is designed to prevent fraud, abuse of memberships and to ensure that everyone who wishes to use our Service is able to access a UK doctor as fast as possible. Once your Appointment goes over 20 minutes, we reserve the right to charge you our standard consultation charges on the Pay As You Go rates as published on the Website. We also reserve the right to cancel your Membership at our sole discretion should you use our Services for any unlawful, prohibited or unusual activities, including but not limited to commercial use of our Services.
Any actions contrary to the Fair Usage Policy or these Terms and Conditions may lead to your Membership being suspended or our relationship with you being terminated. Where we consider it reasonable, we may provide you with a notice of improper behaviour before suspending, terminating or offering an alternative membership, as we deem appropriate. We shall not be obliged to make any refund of any Membership fees paid by you (annual fee or monthly payments, as applicable) if we terminate your Membership in such circumstances. If you are making monthly payments, we shall be entitled to take payment (from your nominated debit or credit card) for the total amount of any outstanding monthly payments which are due in respect of the remaining Membership Period (up to a total of the applicable Membership fee).
31A. PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP AND FAIR USAGE POLICY
Note that we are no longer offering our Premium Membership to new customers. This clause will apply to existing Premium Membership customers only until [1 September 2018], on which date our Premium Membership will be withdrawn.
Premium membership costs £20 per month.
To ensure that everyone has fast access to a UK GP on our network, we operate this Fair Usage Policy for our premium members who get some amazing benefits.
Included in your annual membership plan are all video-consultation sessions on our platform for the period you have a valid membership only. Video-consultation sessions are ten (10) minutes in length when purchased and usage of one (1) minute is the same as usage of ten (10) minutes of a session without exception.
Your premium membership includes the following items, which are available in consultation on our platform only:
You may have up to one (1) of each of these items per consultation only, please note that copies are not included.
CANCELLING YOUR PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP
You can cancel your premium membership at any time.
We allocate an amount of consultation time to you each month and if you choose to cancel your membership in any given month we will calculate the pro-rata number of consultations that you have been allocated (rounding up) and match this to the number that you have used. We know that the average person in the UK visits a GP for advice six times a year and therefore we believe fair usage of our service is twelve consultations per annum. We allocate twelve consultations to you for the twelve-month period and therefore we calculate that each month your allocated use is 8.33% of the annually allotted number of consultations.
Upon the day you cancel, we will calculate the difference between your allotted amount of consultation time and your consultation usage. If you have used less than your allocated consultation time then you will only be billed up until your cancellation date. If you have used more than your allocated pro-rata consultation time then you will be billed for your usage pro-rata, with 100% usage being the total value of your 12 month subscription. Please note that missed consultations contribute to usage time and will be counted.
Our Fair Usage Policy is designed to prevent fraud, abuse of memberships and to ensure that everyone who wishes to use our service is able to access a UK doctor as fast as possible and therefore the total number of consultation sessions including missed appointments is restricted to twelve per annum. Once your consultation sessions breach twelve per annum, we reserve the right to charge you our standard consultation charges on the Push Doctor Go rates as published on our website www.PushDoctor.co.uk. We also reserve the right to cancel your membership at our sole discretion should you use our services for any unlawful, prohibited or unusual activities, including but not limited to commercial use of our services.
Any actions contrary to the Fair Usage Policy or our Terms and Conditions may lead to your membership being suspended or our relationship with you being terminated. Where we consider it reasonable, we may provide you with a notice of improper behavior before suspending, terminating or offering an alternative membership, as we deem appropriate.
If you would like to cancel your membership, please visit our helpful FAQs where instructions on cancellation can be found, as well as links to other helpful topics.

36. PUSH DOCTOR WAITING AND SESSION TIMES
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 Practitioner will be made within certain parameters, within a given time period or at all.

Session times are provided as a guide only and do not guarantee provision of the Services, or that a connection with a Practitioner will be made within certain parameters or at all.

Neither Push Doctor, nor its officers, employees or agents, shall be responsible if the supply of the Services is delayed or prevented by circumstances outside its control.

We may transfer our rights and obligations under these Terms and Conditions to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights.
41. APPLICABLE LAW:
These Terms and Conditions are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Platform or the Services in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.
If a court finds part of these Terms and Conditions illegal for any reason, the rest will continue in force. Each of the clauses operates separately; if any court or relevant authority decides that any clause is unlawful, the remaining clauses will remain in full force and effect.
Even if we delay in enforcing any of these Terms and Conditions, we can still enforce them later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these Terms and Conditions, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaching these Terms and Conditions, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.

46. IDENTITY CHECKS
In order to allow us to provide the Services to you in a way which protects the interests and safety of all of our patients, we need to carry out checks to verify the identity of any person wishing to use the Services (essentially, to make sure you are who you say you are). In carrying out such checks, we will work with third party providers of online ID verification services. We will ask you to provide us with certain information (generally your name, address and date of birth) which we will need to share with the third party providers in order to verify your identity.
By using the Platform and the Services under these terms and conditions, you are expressly consenting to (i) us passing this information to our chosen third party providers of online ID verification services in order for them to perform this service for us and (ii) the carrying out of the ID check by our third party provider, even though such checks may leave a digital footprint / imprint on your digital / online credit file.
If the check conducted by our third party provider results in a “fail”, we will ask you to provide secondary ID information (in hard copy or otherwise) such as Driving Licence, Military ID Card, Police Warrant Card or UK Disabled Driver Card. If you fail to provide us with this secondary ID information, we may be unable to provide any Services to you, we may cancel any consultation that you may have booked through the Platform by that point in time and we may apply the terms of our standard cancellation policy which can be found in section 29.
