NHS Physiotherapy service – Self Referral

NHS Bromley Musculoskeletal (MSK) Services

Self-Refer to our NHS Physiotherapy service:

Getting help

We deliver a range of NHS Physical (Musculoskeletal) Health services that involve helping people from age 16+ to the elderly, from all walks of life. We have a team of experts who are committed to improving the way you move and enhancing your quality of life, by giving you the most suitable treatment for an injury or condition.

What is Self-referral?

If you are 16 years or older and have back, neck, joint or general muscle problems you can now self-refer to physiotherapy without the need for a GP appointment. You can still see your GP to be referred, but self-referral aims to give you rapid access direct to a physiotherapy assessment. Self-referral gives you rapid access to a physiotherapist without the need to see your GP, thus improving your access and wait time. It puts you in control of your care.

How does it work?

If you feel that you would benefit from our services and are registered with a Bromley GP and you would like to self-refer, then follow the instructions below:

Online referral

Using this online Physiotherapy assessment tool will allow you to answer a series of questions in your own time. We can then direct you to the most appropriate care for you as quickly as possible. You can access this tool 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Alternatively we will contact you within 7 days to confirm a telephone or video appointment with a Physiotherapist to understand your problem and guide your next steps.

Please have your NHS number ready – if you don’t have your NHS number to hand then simply use the NHS website.
