Physio Self Referral

What is Physiotherapy self-referral?

If you have a Richmond GP, you can now access the local NHS physiotherapy service directly, without seeing your GP first. Any person above 16 years of age can refer themselves directly to a physiotherapist without seeing a GP. We provide specialist assessment, early advice, and treatment for people with back, neck or joint complaints; problems following injuries; muscle or tendon problems or any recent changes in a long-standing condition.

If imaging (X-Ray,MRI, or Ultrasound) or a consultant opinion is required, this will all be arranged.

Once we receive your referral, we will: either send you advice and appropriate guidance, exercises in the post or by email, or, arrange a face-to-face assessment.

All patients are prioritised as either urgent or routine according to their clinical need.
