Referrals to the service are made via one of two routes:
Direct referral from your GP.
Patient self-referral. This route enables you to access our service without an appointment from your GP.
Click here to access the self-referral form.
All referrals are screened and prioritised by members of the physiotherapy service prior to appointments being offered to ensure they are appropriate for physiotherapy assessment and management.
Out of Borough GP Referrals
All GP and Consultant referrals (Out of Borough via the GP) need to be written on an approved referral form with the fullest possible information in order to facilitate screening. Where an approved referral form is not available, a letter will be accepted so long as the appropriate GP, patient and clinical details are included. Referrals should be sent to our Single Point of Access (SPA) team.
Self-referral forms can be accessed either directly from Stratford Physiotherapy Centre or the patient’s own Newham locality GP.
The MSK Physiotherapy Service operates a clinical screening and prioritisation process with all referrals.
