Who can see a physiotherapist?

Physiotherapy is available to everyone. You do not need a doctor to refer you for private physiotherapy. Physiotherapists are primary care practitioners and act as a first point of contact for patients, just like your GP. They also accept referrals from GP’s and consultants, which is necessary if claiming under private health / medical insurance.

Is Physiotherapy appropriate for you?

You may wish to wear appropriate clothing as the physical examination may require you to undress sufficiently to enable us to examine the area which may include examination of other areas to identify the primary source of your symptoms.

This may include referral for other specialist advice or treatment if appropriate.
