Physiotherapy referral service:
Adults registered with a Mid Essex GP practice, can now self-refer to physiotherapy for any musculoskeletal problem, subject to the local NHS service criteria.
Whether any individual feels they need physiotherapy or a healthcare professional has recommended it, everyone is encouraged to firstly visit the Symptom Checker and Self Help pages for digital self-management support of their musculoskeletal problem before establishing whether they need further treatment within the Provide Physiotherapy Service to help their recovery.
If, after following the online advice and guidance, it is still considered necessary and appropriate to access the Provide Physiotherapy Service for current musculoskeletal symptoms, patients can click on the ‘Physiotherapy Self-referral’ box to self refer to the service for further management of their musculoskeletal problem
