It was very interesting to meet Sally Yorke, physiotherapy lead for the Sussex Musculoskeletal Partnership who have developed a service whereby patients can self-refer for physiotherapy without having to see a GP first.
Self-referral is freeing up valuable GP time whilst also increasing patient control of their health care journey. Trained physios are very aware of symptoms that should be directed to a GP, but in the vast majority of cases patients require physio support and this can be swiftly provided. For more information on who is eligible for self-referral and how to self-refer please click on the “Physiotherapy Self-Referral” link below.
