How Push Doctor serves Weymouth
If you find yourself unwell in Weymouth, you don't need to travel to a busy walk-in centre.
Push Doctor is an online alternative to a walk-in centre, allowing you to see a GP face-to-face via video consultation using your phone, tablet or laptop.
So this isn't a physical walk-in centre?
Push Doctor is an online-only healthcare service run by qualified GPs. 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?
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 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?
Unlike visiting a GP in person, Push Doctor cuts down your waiting times to help you get the help you need sooner. 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. 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 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?
You're always safe when booking an appointment with a Push Doctor GP. We're closely regulated by the NHS and have an excellent track record when it comes to data security and privacy. Your consultation is completely private and confidential, just as it would be in your own surgery, with SSL technology encrypting and protecting all information transmitted through 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.
Can I see an online doctor with the NHS?
Yes, you can see an online doctor with the NHS if your GP surgery has partnered with us. If we're not currently partnered with your local surgery in Weymouth, you can still see an online doctor privately for a fee. Find out if your surgery is eligible by clicking here

What is a walk-in centre?
Walk-in centres are sites that provide medical attention for routine ailments and injuries. 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. 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 aren't suitable for emergency treatment, but can help in a number of situations, 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?
Walk-in centres are available to the public without the need to call ahead first. They do, however, have specific opening times, meaning you won't be able to recieve out-of-hours treatment. 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?
If you need non-emergency healthcare support, Push Doctor can give you the help and advice you need without long waits or needing to travel to busy walk-in centres. 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. Get the care you need without the queues by setting up a Push Doctor account and speaking to one of our experts.
