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. 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.
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?
Any medication prescribed by a Push Doctor GP will be sent directly to your local pharmacy. This means whether you live in Scholes or Poolstock, you can easily get your prescriptions without the headache. Just set up a Push Doctor account to get started, then book your first online appointment with one of our trained GPs.
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. 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. Plus, none of your video consultations or text chats are recorded — your medical record is the only place where sensitive data is saved .
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. 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?
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 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?
For those who don't want to travel and queue in a walk-in centre, there's an alternative. Pushdoctor can connect you with a healthcare expert without the need to visit a centre. 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.
