How Push Doctor serves Swansea
With a population of around 240,000 to serve, Swansea's medical facilities are often very busy.
Not everyone can afford to spend hours in a waiting room at a walk-in centre. Instead, why not see a doctor from your home or workplace and get the treatment you need in minutes?
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?
Our NHS-trained doctors are fully qualified and can, in most situations, diagnose and prescribe treatment over video calls or text chat. It's easy to get started, too. Just create a Push Doctor account and book your first appointment with one of our trained GPs. Although Push Doctor is a more convienient way to recieve healthcare advice and prescriptions, you should always recieve immediate treatment in an emergancy.
How much time will I save?
Push Doctor streamlines how long it takes to be seen by a medical professional, meaning you can get your prescriptions faster than visiting a GP in person. 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.

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. The benefit of a walk-in centre is that patients do not need to be registered with the facility or a GP to receive care at the 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?
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

- Ear, eye and throat infection
- Cuts, strains and sprains
Can you just go to a walk-in centre?
Walk-in centres are available to the public without the need to call ahead first. 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.
