Physiotherapy - Self Referral

Physio - you can self refer!

Did you know you can self refer to see a physiotherapist without seeing a GP first!!

Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy - This term relates to physiotherapy of the musculoskeletal system. This involves muscles, bones, joints, nerves, ligaments, cartilage and spinal discs.  If you feel that you are suffering from a musculoskeletal complaint that could benefit from physiotherapy, you are now able to make a direct referral to your local physiotherapy department within the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board.

This offers patients greater choice and faster access to hospital services without the need to visit the GP.

Once the physiotherapy department receive the form, it will be looked at by a physiotherapist.

If they think we can help with your condition, you will be placed on the physiotherapy waiting list and offered an appointment. We will contact you by telephone or letter about the appointment.

If they are unable to help you, they will contact you either by telephone or letter to let you know.

How long will you have to wait?

This depends on the current physiotherapy service waiting list (GP referred and self-referred patients will wait for the same time). Please be advised our routine waiting times may be up to 14-weeks for an appointment, however, urgent problems are usually seen within a few weeks.

If your symptoms get significantly worse while you are waiting then you are advised to see your GP
