How Push Doctor serves Birmingham
As one of the UK's biggest cities, Birmingham's health services are constantly stretched. Many walk-in centres have a long waiting time, making it difficult for many people to find the time to see a doctor.
With Push Doctor's online walk-in centre, there's no waiting and no travelling. You can use your smartphone, tablet or desktop device to have a video consultation with an experienced GP in minutes.
Our GPs are available from 8am until 8pm every day, so you can get an out of hours appointment if you need one.
So this isn't a physical walk-in centre?
Push Doctor is an online-only healthcare service run by qualified GPs. You can book online appointments with one of our doctors and recieve prescriptions sent to your local pharmacy, all without leaving your home. 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. It's easy to get started, too. Just create a Push Doctor account and book your first appointment with one of our trained GPs. Push Doctor makes it easier to recieve healthcare advice, however, in a medical emergancy, you dshould always seek immediate assistance from a doctor in person.
How much time will I save?
Unlike visiting a GP in person, Push Doctor cuts down your waiting times to help you get the help you need sooner. With same-day appointment slots and no need to travel or queue, you can receive a consultation quickly and hassle-free. Simply set up an account with Push Doctor to book your first appointment.
Where does my prescription get sent to?
Any medication prescribed by a Push Doctor GP will be sent directly to your local pharmacy. So whether you live in Newtown, Deritend or even Bullring, you'll always be able to pick up your medication from a nearby location. 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?
Push Doctor is heavily integrated and regulated by NHS England and maintains an excellent track record of data security. Your consultation is completely private and confidential, just as it would be in your own surgery, with SSL technology encrypting and protecting all information transmitted through our platform. 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?

What is a walk-in centre?
Walk-in centres are sites that provide medical attention for routine ailments and injuries. The benefit of a walk-in centre is that patients do not need to be registered with the facility or a GP to receive care at the centre. You will, however, need to queue which can be time consuming. Push Doctor offers a more simple sollution, allowing you to video call with trained GPs from your home.
What services do walk-in centres have?
If you need non-emergancy healthcare but can't wait for an appointment with your GP, walk-in centres can offer assistance in a number of areas, 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?
Walk-in centres are available to the public without the need to call ahead first. If you do visit a centre, however, you'll need to make sure you're ariving during opening hours as they can varry from site to site. 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?
Not everyone enjoys visiting walk-in centres, which is where we come in. Push Doctor lets you book an appointment with a doctor without leaving the house. 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.
