Self-referral to our Adult Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Service

The Adult Physiotherapy Musculoskeletal team accepts self-referrals directly from patients registered at Cumberland House GP practice in Macclesfield or East Cheshire NHS Trust employees, in addition to referrals from GP’s, Consultants and other Health Care Professionals.

If you’re not sure if you should self-refer to physiotherapy, the following questions may help.

  • Have you got a new joint, muscle or bone problem which has not responded to self-help?
  • Have you had a reoccurrence of a previous problem or change in symptoms for an ongoing musculoskeletal condition and it has been longer than 6 months since you were last seen for this condition?

If yes, then a referral to physiotherapy might be beneficial.

If you have seen a Physiotherapist for the same condition within 6 months, but your symptoms have significantly changed then please detail this on your referral form.  However, if you have any concerns about your change in symptoms please see your GP.
