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.
The community podiatry (foot health) clinics offer a range of services to assess, treat and advise people on any foot condition.
They aim to help you to:
- Prevent future foot problems through health promotion
- Relieve pain
- Maintain function and mobility
- Prevent or minimise deformity
- Reduce the risk of ulceration and amputation
