How Push Doctor serves Bedford
Located in Bedfordshire, Bedford is home to around 80,000 people. That means that the GP surgeries can often get very busy and you may have to wait to see a doctor.
At Push Doctor, you can see a GP quickly, at a time that suits you, from home, at work or even on the go.
So this isn't a physical walk-in centre?
Push Doctor is an online-only healthcare service run by qualified GPs. Without needing to leave you home, you can video call or text chat with a trained GP and have prescriptions sent to your local pharmacy. To book your first online appointment, just create an account with Push Doctor.
Should I use this service or go to a walk-in centre?
Push Doctor has a team of NHS-trained GPs that can offer healthcare advice and prescribe medication, just like a walk-in centre. The difference is that, with us, you'll never need to leave home to see an expert. Simply sign up with Push Doctor by creating an account, and book an appointment with one of our GPs. Push Doctor is a convenient service and is usually the quickest and easiest way to receive treatment. However, if you are suffering from a medical emergency, you should seek immediate treatment from a medical professional in person.
How much time will I save?
Push Doctor streamlines how long it takes to be seen by a medical professional, meaning you can get your prescriptions faster than visiting a GP in person. You'll never need to waste time travelling to see a doctor or queueing in a walk-in centre. You can even schedule same-day appointments. All you need to do to get started is to set up your account with Push Doctor and book an appointment with one of our specialists.
Where does my prescription get sent to?
After your Push Doctor consultation, any prescriptions you require will be delivered directly to your local pharmacy. This means whether you live in Fenlake or Brickhill, you can easily get your prescriptions without the headache. All you need to get started is to sest up an account with Push Doctor and schedule your first appointment.
Is seeing a doctor online safe?
Data security is something we take very seriously at Push Doctor, which is why we're integrated and regulated by the NHS. In the same way as visiting a doctor in person, your appointments with our GPs are completely private and confidential. Any information used within our platform is also encrypted for total security. We won't record any of your online appointments either. In fact, the only thing that we will save is anything within your medical record.
Can I see an online doctor with the NHS?
Yes, you can see an online doctor with the NHS if your GP surgery has partnered with us. Don't worry if your surgery isn't currently partnered with us, you can still se an online doctor privately for a fee. Find out if your surgery is eligible by clicking here

What is a walk-in centre?
If you have a minor injury, you can visit a walk-in centre instead of a hospital or your GP. Walk-in centres are popular because you don't need to be registered to recieve treatment. Unfortunately, however, walk-in centres may require a long waiting period as you'll need to queue to see a doctor. Push Doctor offers a more convienient solution, allowing you to video call a GP from home.
What services do walk-in centres have?
Walk-in centres aren't suitable for emergency treatment, but can help in a number of situations, including:including:-
- Coughs, colds and flu-like symptoms
- Skin conditions
- Stomach upsets
- Asthma and other breathing problems
- Back pain
- Ear, eye and throat infection
- Cuts, strains and sprains
Can you just go to a walk-in centre?
Yes, provided your local walk-in centre is open, you can go whenever you need to. Opening hours, however, vary from centre to centre, meaning you’ll need to go at a time when you can be seen. Although you won't need an appointment to be seen in a walk-in centre, you will need to wait until a doctor is available to see you. This can very greatly depending on how busy the centre is, meaning you could be waiting for hours.
What's the alternative to a walk-in centre?
For those who don't want to travel and queue in a walk-in centre, there's an alternative. Pushdoctor can connect you with a healthcare expert without the need to visit a centre. With trained GPs who can prescribe treatments over video calls or text chats, you can receive the treatment and specialist advice you’re looking for without even needing to leave your own home.
