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. 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.
