Doctor Care Anywhere is a private online healthcare service giving you 24/7 access to appointments with clinicians, by video or phone, from wherever you are.
You’ll receive access to GP and Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP) appointments whenever and wherever you need them – with appointments usually available in a few hours.
Consultations are up to 20 minutes long, which means you’ll have plenty of time to discuss your health concern with your clinician. You can also have prescriptions delivered to your door or ready to collect from your local pharmacy, as well as access to your medical notes, open private referrals, and fit notes all from your account.

No. This is a private service.
Prescriptions provided by Doctor Care Anywhere are private prescriptions, and will therefore incur medication charges when filled at a pharmacy.
All of their doctors are General Practitioners (GPs) who are registered and hold a current licence to practice with the General Medical Council (GMC). They have at least 5 years’ post-graduation experience and all undergo the regulatory monitoring of their medical practice through the annual appraisal system.
Their ANPs are also highly skilled and trained clinicians that have additional post graduate training and Masters qualifications (alongside a nursing degree) that enables them to independently examine, assess, make diagnoses, treat, prescribe, interpret results and make referrals for certain patients who present with symptoms.
If you have any queries regarding the details of the service and how to access it, please contact Doctor Care Anywhere via their app.
You can access clinician appointments 24/7, 365 days a year.
Their GPs are available for appointments 24/7 and appointments with their ANPs are available Monday – Sunday, including bank holidays between 8am and 10pm. If you try and make an appointment with an ANP outside of these hours, the next available GP appointment will be offered.
Note that the service is not meant for emergencies. If you have an emergency, please call 999 or go to the nearest Accident & Emergency department.
GPs and ANPs are restricted in the help they can provide in relation to dental problems. You should contact West End Dental in the first instance regarding any such problems.
Children must access the Doctor Care Anywhere service via their parent's account.
Once your child has become a member with West End Dental, our team will contact you to confirm when your Doctor Care Anywhere account has been updated. At this point, you can then add your child to your Doctor Care Anywhere account.
This process is manual, and can take up to 10 working days. If you have not received a notification from us after this time, please contact us.
