How Push Doctor serves Wirral
The Wirral is a penninsula in the nort-west of England, close to Chester and Liverpool. Its GP surgeries can get very busy, which means that you may not always be able to get an appointment as quickly as you would like.
With Push Doctor, you don't have to wait. Book an appointment online and see a doctor in minutes, without leaving the house!
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?

So whether you live in Woodchurch, Oxton or even Frankby, you'll always be able to pick up your medication from a nearby location. Just set up a Push Doctor account to get started, then book your first online appointment with one of our trained GPs.

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. 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. You will, however, need to queue which can be time consuming. Push Doctor offers a more simple sollution, allowing you to video call with trained GPs from your home.
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?
Yes, you can visit a walk-in centre without any previous notice or booking in advance. 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. 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. Simply create a Push Doctor account and speak to one of our healthcare experts in no time.
