Self-referral for physiotherapy slashes costs


Brilliant idea, a real healthy option saving GP consult and referral time . It was available in my area, so successful they had to withdraw the self referral service as it was too popular! Where's the logic in promoting self care or being thankful patients keen to self manage msk problems then making it difficult for them to access physio?
