Many conditions can be treated with good recovery without requiring a Consultant referral or further investigations; however, if onward referral is the most clinically appropriate treatment pathway for you, then we will facilitate this via your GP. Your Orthopaedic Physiotherapist will write a letter to your GP with a summary of their findings and any referral recommendations, to assist with further management options. If you are already under the care of an Orthopaedic Consultant, we can also liaise with them where clinically indicated.
If Physiotherapy is more appropriate for your condition, then treatment through education, exercises, manual therapy, and self-management techniques may be provided. Follow-up sessions lasting 30 minutes can be booked if your Orthopaedic Physiotherapist identifies that a review session/s would be appropriate to support you.
