How Push Doctor serves Houghton

woman-finding-local-walk-in-centre

The small town of Houghton doesn't have a walk-in centre, meaning you have to travel to a nearby town to see a GP at short notice.

With Push Doctor, you can see a GP in minutes from wherever you need us.

Have a face-to-face video consultation on your mobile, tablet or laptop and get expert advice, a prescription, fit note or referral instantly.

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.

Our NHS-trained doctors are fully qualified and can, in most situations, diagnose and prescribe treatment over video calls or text chat. It's easy to get started, too. Just create a Push Doctor account and book your first appointment with one of our trained GPs. Although Push Doctor is a more convienient way to recieve healthcare advice and prescriptions, you should always recieve immediate treatment in an emergancy.

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.

Any medication prescribed by a Push Doctor GP will be sent directly to your local pharmacy. So whether you live in Harpley or even Rudham, 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.

Push Doctor is heavily integrated and regulated by NHS England and maintains an excellent track record of data security. 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. Plus, none of your video consultations or text chats are recorded — your medical record is the only place where sensitive data is saved .

You can see an online doctor with the NHS, provided that your current GP surgery has partneded with Push Doctor. 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.

A walk-in centre is an alternative to visiting a GP or hospital, offering treatment to minor inguries and sicknesses. You don't need to book an appointment ahead of time or be registed with a doctor at a walk-in 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.

Walk-in centres provide advice and treatment for a number of minor illnesses and injuries, including:including:-

  • Coughs, colds and flu-like symptoms
  • Skin conditions
  • Stomach upsets
  • Asthma and other breathing problems
  • UTIs
  • Back pain
  • Ear, eye and throat infection
  • Cuts, strains and sprains
Push Doctor's team of trained GPs are also qualified to offer advice and prescriptions to treat these issues, giving you an easier way to recieve the care you need.

Yes, provided your local walk-in centre is open, you can go whenever you need to. 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. 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.

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. To get started, all you need to do is set up an account with Push Doctor and set up your first digital appointment.
