How Push Doctor serves Chester
Getting an appointment at a walk-in centre isn't always easy. You could travel the length of Chester trying to find a doctor, but chances are you'd face a long wait.
With our online walk-in centre, seeing a doctor is easy. You just log in on your smartphone, tablet or desktop device and book a consultation in minutes.
You can talk to our experienced GPs about any medical issues you're having for as long as you need to and get the advice you need.
What's more, if you need to see a doctor out of hours, on bank holiday or during the weekend, we're here for you from 8am until 8pm every day.
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. Create an account today and book your first appointment with one of our doctors.
Should I use this service or go to a walk-in centre?
Our NHS-trained doctors are fully qualified and can, in most situations, diagnose and prescribe treatment over video calls or text chat. 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?
On average, Push Doctor can save you a number of hours when compared to visiting a GP or walk-in centre. 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?
Just like if you were visiting a GP in person, any prescriptions from Push Doctor will be sent directly to your local pharmacy. So whether you live in Newton, Handbrige or even Hoole, 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?
You're always safe when booking an appointment with a Push Doctor GP. We're closely regulated by the NHS and have an excellent track record when it comes to data security and privacy. 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?
If your GP surgery has partnered with us, you are able to see an online doctor with the NHS. You can, however, still see an online doctor if your local surgery is not currently partnered with us, you'll just need to do it privately for a fee. Find out if your surgery is eligible by clicking here

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. 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, you can visit a walk-in centre without any previous notice or booking in advance. They do, however, have specific opening times, meaning you won't be able to recieve out-of-hours treatment. Another thing to consider is your wait time. You don't need to book an appointment to be treated in a walk-in centre, but if their are a number of other patients who also need treatment, you may have a long wait to be seen by a doctor.
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. 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.
