How Push Doctor serves Leicester
Leicester is home to around 330,000 people, so it's not always easy to find a doctor's appointment at short notice.
Thankfully, Push Doctor can connect you to an experienced GP in minutes. You'll talk to them face-to-face using your smartphone, tablet or desktop computer and get all the medical advice you need at a time to suit you.
You can book an appointment from 8am - 8pm, so seeing a doctor out of hours isn't a problem. You can simply fit your appointment around your schedule.
So this isn't a physical 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.
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 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?

What is a walk-in centre?
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.
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. 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.
