So this isn't a physical walk-in centre?
Push Doctor isn't a walk-in centre, it's an online healthcare 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?
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. 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.

What is a walk-in centre?

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