What is a self-referral?
A self-referral offers you access to a specialist without the need to see your GP first. A self-referral may also reduce your wait to access an expert opinion, advice and treatment of your condition and puts you in control of your care.
You can self refer if you have:
- Back pain or sciatica
- Hip pain
- Knee pain
- Foot or ankle pain
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Elbow pain
- Wrist and hand pain
If you are pregnant or under 17 years of age, please arrange a GP appointment.
What to expect when you self-refer to Physiotherapy at Guy’s & St Thomas’:
- Your referral will be reviewed within two working days by a specialist physiotherapist.
- You will be contacted by telephone or letter to arrange this appointment.
- Waiting times for an appointment are based upon what you have advised the hospital within your self-referral. If necessary, the hospital will arrange to see you sooner but you should expect to be seen within 2 weeks.
