How to access the service

As a hospital inpatient, you can be referred to the physiotherapy service by medical, nursing or allied health professional staff.

As an outpatient, you can access physiotherapy in a hospital or wellbeing and treatment centre if:

  • you have been discharged from hospital and referred for ongoing physiotherapy
  • you have been referred by a GP, consultant or other healthcare professional
