So this isn't a physical walk-in centre?
No, Push Doctor is a fully online consultation service. You can book an appointment, see a medical professional and receive a prescription without needing to leave the comfort of 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?
With a team of qualified GPs at hand, Push Doctor can diagnose, offer healthcare advice and even prescribe medication — all over video calls and text chats. 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. We let you book appointments for the same day, meaning you can be seen by a doctor right away. Plus, you won't even need to leave your home. To book your first online appointment with a fully-trained GP, simply create an account with Push Doctor.
Where does my prescription get sent to?
After your Push Doctor consultation, any prescriptions you require will be delivered directly to your local pharmacy. You'll always be able to pick up your medication from a nearby location. Set up an account with Push Doctor for an easier way to get the treatment you need.
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. 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. Additionally, consultations are not recorded and sensitive data is only saved within your medical record.
Can I see an online doctor with the NHS?

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. You don't need to book an appointment ahead of time or be registed with a doctor at a walk-in 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?
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?
Walk-in centres are available to the public without the need to call ahead first. Opening hours, however, vary from centre to centre, meaning you’ll need to go at a time when you can be seen. You don’t need an appointment to go to a walk-in centre, but you will need to wait until a healthcare professional has time to see you, which could be a few hours if the centre is particularly busy.
What's the alternative to a walk-in centre?
If you need non-emergency healthcare support, Push Doctor can give you the help and advice you need without long waits or needing to travel to busy walk-in centres. 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. Get the care you need without the queues by setting up a Push Doctor account and speaking to one of our experts.
