Do I need a referral?
Referrals to physiotherapists are not required. Anybody can make an appointment to see a physiotherapist about health matters treated with physiotherapy.
But many of our patients are referred by doctors. GPs find that particular health matters can be addressed by physiotherapy, and in those cases often refer patients on.
Surgeons also often refer patients to physiotherapists for post and pre-operative rehabilitation.
Whether it be your GP or a medical specialist, referring doctors are kept fully informed of treatment and progress and are consulted on any matters of concern to the patient or physio.
