How Push Doctor serves Cambridge
- Waiting times
When you get to a walk-in centre, chances are you'll be in a queue. Depending on how busy it is, you could be waiting for hours before you're seen by a doctor, the average wait time is around 3 hours.
With Push Doctor, you'll be seen in minutes and you won't even need to leave the house!
Our doctors can provide a prescription during your consultation for any medication you need, including repeat prescriptions.
Wheather it's the Milton Rd Pharmacy or another local to you, you can choose which pharmacy you want to pick it up from and we'll call them to make sure it's in stock.
You'll be able to collect your medication on the same day.
If you need specialist treatment to investigate your problem in more detail, our doctors can write a referral letter for you during your consultation.
You'll have quick and easy access to the best treatment available, whenever you need it.
So this isn't a physical walk-in centre?
On average, Push Doctor can save you a number of hours when compared to visiting a GP or walk-in centre. With same-day appointment slots and no need to travel or queue, you can receive a consultation quickly and hassle-free. 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.
Should I use this service or go to a walk-in centre?
No, Push Doctor is a fully online consultation service. You can book online appointments with one of our doctors and recieve prescriptions sent to your local pharmacy, all without leaving your home. All you need to do to get started is to register and book an 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. Booking an appointment with us online is exactly the same as visiting a doctor in person — all consultations are fully confidential and we protect and encypt all personal data used within 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?
If your GP surgery has partnered with us, you are able to see an online doctor with the NHS. 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. If you don't need emergency treatment, however, Push Doctor is a more convinient way to recieve medical advice from NHS proffesionals.
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?
Yes, you can visit a walk-in centre without any previous notice or booking in advance. 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. All our GPs have been NHS-trained and are fully qualified to prescribe medication, all over video chat, meaning you'll never need to leave your home to see a doctor. To get started, all you need to do is set up an account with Push Doctor and set up your first digital appointment.
