How Push Doctor serves St Helens
St Helens is a large town, so if you need to see a GP, you might find that you have to wait.
With Push Doctor, you can see an NHS-trained GP in minutes.
You can have a face-to-face video consultation online, from home, work or on the go and get expert advice, same-day prescriptions, referral letters and fit notes.
So this isn't a physical walk-in centre?
Push Doctor isn't a walk-in centre, it's an online healthcare service. 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. Create an account today and book your first appointment with one of our doctors.
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. All you need to do to get started is to register with Push Doctor and set up an appointment. Push Doctor makes it easier to recieve healthcare advice, however, in a medical emergancy, you dshould always seek immediate assistance from a doctor in person.
How much time will I save?
On average, Push Doctor can save you a number of hours when compared to visiting a GP or walk-in centre. You'll never need to waste time travelling to see a doctor or queueing in a walk-in centre. You can even schedule same-day appointments. 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.
Where does my prescription get sent to?
After your Push Doctor consultation, any prescriptions you require will be delivered directly to your local pharmacy. This means whether you live in Knowle village or Copt Heath, you can easily get your prescriptions without the headache. Set up an account with Push Doctor for an easier way to get the treatment you need.
Is seeing a doctor online safe?
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. We won't record any of your online appointments either. In fact, the only thing that we will save is anything within your medical record.

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. Walk-in centres are popular because you don't need to be registered to recieve treatment. If you don't need emergency treatment, however, Push Doctor is a more convinient way to recieve medical advice from NHS proffesionals.
What services do walk-in centres have?
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
- Back pain
- Ear, eye and throat infection
- Cuts, strains and sprains
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. They do, however, have specific opening times, meaning you won't be able to recieve out-of-hours treatment. 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?
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. We can connect you to a medical proffesional via video calls or text chats to recieve prescriptions and healthcare recommendations, all from the comfort of your home.
