We are looking forward to working with the Health Foundation on this programme.


You can see a physiotherapist without going to your GP first with go2physio.

Gaby Ford, Clinical Fellow at Haelo on a 12 month secondment, SRFT Physiotherapist and Clinical Lead for the self-referral project, said: “This is about putting the patient at the centre of their care and supporting them to self-manage their conditions.

“Patients who choose to self-refer may find they are getting a physio appointment quicker because they are not having to wait for a GP appointment.”

Physiotherapists will ensure that you will receive the most up to date and effective evidence based treatments for your problem.  Some physiotherapists are also qualified to administer injections or prescribe drugs without seeing your GP or Pharmacist.

Currently Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust only accept self-referrals from patients of the following practices:

  • Langworthy Medical Practice
  • Ordsall Health Surgery
  • Sorrel Group Practice

go2physio will be rolled out to other practices across Salford in the coming year. The self referral form is available here.
