HOW DOES PUSH DOCTOR WORK?
Push Doctor is an online consultation service working in partnership with the NHS. You must be an NHS patient registered at an NHS GP practice to access the service. You will be able to access our online appointment service in the same way that you make an appointment to see your GP.
When you make an appointment with your practice (via. face to face visit or telephone), the Receptionist will offer you an online consultation, and send you an SMS invite to sign up to our Push Doctor service. Once you receive your invite, you'll be able to register an account with us online.
Book your appointment in the app quickly and easily, simply selecting the time that suits you most.
When it's time for your consultation, you'll enter our online waiting room, and the GP will see you as soon as possible.
In your online video consultation, the GP will ask you about your symptoms and can take a look at any affected areas, or listen to any symptoms, for example, if you have a cough.
If you'd like to use text to communicate with the GP in your consultation, there's a chat functionality. If you need medication, the GP can write you a prescription instantly which you can collect from your nominated pharmacy.
All of our doctors are NHS trained, registered with the General Medical Council and hand-picked so you get the best possible care.
Push Doctor is regulated by the Care Quality Commission: 1-1207461908.
Push Doctor is not designed for urgent situations or medical emergencies. In these urgent and or emergency circumstances, please dial 999 or go straight to Accident & Emergency as soon as possible.
