is a doctor’s referral required

No referral is required to obtain physiotherapy for private patients.  All our physiotherapists are trained in being the first point of contact to address your musculoskeletal and health concerns. If the physiotherapist feels a referral to a general practitioner or specialist is required, we will organise you a suitable referral.

A medical referral from your general practitioner is necessary only if:

  • You have been injured at work and claiming through Workers Compensation
  • You have been involved in a motor vehicle accident and claiming your treatment expenses through a Green Slip/Third Party
  • Your treatment is covered by Veterans Affairs
