How Push Doctor serves Stoke
With nearly 250,000 people to look after, health services in Stoke can be very busy. Waiting times at walk-in centres can be lengthy, and some of us simply don't have time to see a doctor.
If you need to speak to a GP quickly, at a time to suit you, Push Doctor can help. Simply book an online consultation and be seen in minutes on your smartphone, tablet or desktop computer.
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. To book your first online appointment, just create an account with Push Doctor.
Should I use this service or go to a walk-in centre?
Our NHS-trained doctors are fully qualified and can, in most situations, diagnose and prescribe treatment over video calls or text chat. All you need to do to get started is to register with Push Doctor and set up an appointment. 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?
Unlike visiting a GP in person, Push Doctor cuts down your waiting times to help you get the help you need sooner. We let you book appointments for the same day, meaning you can be seen by a doctor right away. Plus, you won't even need to leave your home. To book your first online appointment with a fully-trained GP, simply create an account with Push Doctor.
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 Fenton or Boothen, 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?
Data security is something we take very seriously at Push Doctor, which is why we're integrated and regulated by the NHS. In the same way as visiting a doctor in person, your appointments with our GPs are completely private and confidential. Any information used within our platform is also encrypted for total security. 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.
Can I see an online doctor with the NHS?
If your GP surgery has partnered with us, you are able to see an online doctor with the NHS. 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. Find out if your surgery is eligible by clicking here

What is a walk-in centre?
If you have a minor injury, you can visit a walk-in centre instead of a hospital or your GP. You don't need to book an appointment ahead of time or be registed with a doctor at a walk-in centre. 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. Opening hours, however, vary from centre to centre, meaning you’ll need to go at a time when you can be seen. 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.
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. All our GPs have been NHS-trained and are fully qualified to prescribe medication, all over video chat, meaning you'll never need to leave your home to see a doctor. To get started, all you need to do is set up an account with Push Doctor and set up your first digital appointment.
