Physiotherapy without a GP referral

Only one in three CCGs in England allows patients to refer themselves for physiotherapy, a Chartered Society of Physiotherapy investigation has found. The figure was revealed in replies to freedom of information requests sent by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) to all 211 CCGs in England. Patients in 22% of CCGs have comprehensive self-referral to physiotherapy, the CSP found. Meanwhile, 9% of CCGs offer only limited self-referral, restricted to particular conditions or primary care practices.
