Physiotherapy self referral

When should I self-refer?

If you have a new injury or problem, it is worthwhile exploring our advice and leaflets section first. Many problems improve with suitable advice and exercise.

If your GP or a healthcare professional has suggested you refer yourself to us, please use our online self-referral portal.

However, if your condition is worsening or if you are in significant pain or feel you need urgent treatment, please contact your GP, NHS 111, or A&E as appropriate.

What can I self-refer for?

We are able to assess and manage many musculoskeletal conditions involving the muscles, nerves or joints. We are also able to assess many pelvic health conditions. We are able to accept referrals for anyone aged 16 and over who is registered with a GP in Cambridgeshire or Peterborough. If you're unsure whether your GP is in our catchment area, please click here to check [opens in new window].
