Self-referral involves accessing NHS health services and other support yourself without needing an appointment with your GP. This is explained further by patient info Self-referral | Patient.

In practice self-referrals

There are new roles and services which have been created in practices to support the high demand for GP appointments. This support may help you avoid the need to wait for a GP appointment and provides a high level of expertise.

These services and roles are provided through local practices working together (Our Primary Care Network), external organisations or created by our practice. You can self-refer to this support without needing to go through a doctor. We have included details below:

Physiotherapy helps to restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability.

First Contact Practitioners who work at our practice are physiotherapists with enhanced skills. They can help patients with musculoskeletal issues by assessing and diagnosing issues, giving expert advice on how best to manage their conditions & referring them onto specialist services if necessary. They are able to request MRI and Ultrasounds if they feel it’s appropriate.

There is more information on physiotherapists under Additional Roles.

To access this support please contact

  • Reception

A social prescriber connects people with local community activities and services that can help improve their health and wellbeing. So, this might include support with fixing housing issues, helping you adopt healthy habits, support with managing your mental health, or overcoming loneliness.

There is more information on social prescribers under Additional Roles.

To access this support please contact

  • Reception

If this service is not available through the practice or PCN then you can contact Prevention Matters – Connection Support who though not connected to the practice offer a similar service.

Private care

Many patients even if they do not have health insurance may end up using some form of private care. Sometimes this is done for a quicker appointment, sometimes it is done for services not available on the NHS or for more extensive treatment that cannot be provided on the NHS (e.g., longer and more sessions of physiotherapy). Some of this care can be accessed without you needing to see your GP. We make no personal recommendations on any private services.

Private community services

Private care in general (includes private counsellors, minor and cosmetic surgery)

Private services (external organisations) on our premises
Any private services provided on our premises (e.g., private podiatrist) if available can normally be found under Clinics.
