Self Referral to Women’s and Men’s Health Physiotherapy Services – For urinary/bladder symptoms only

Please note, this page is printable by selecting the normal print options on your computer.

What is self-referral?

The continence service in Milton Keynes is now able to accept referrals from a patient directly regarding their bladder symptoms; this means that a GP is not required to sign the referral form. GP referrals will continue to be accepted if this is the preferred option. By accepting self-referrals, we aim to reduce the time that patients spend waiting for an appointment; enabling earlier access to a physiotherapist who can offer specific treatment and advice options for pain and symptom management.

To self-refer to this physiotherapy service; please complete the attached form giving as much information as possible to allow the physiotherapist to accurately identify the problem to enable the
best pathway for treatment.

What happens now?
The physiotherapist will triage your referral and may telephone you to discuss any information you have given on your form. It is likely that your first appointment will be an informal group advice/information session– the group requires no personal information to be shared and is very discreet. This will be followed with a 1:1 individual appointment with your physiotherapist a few weeks later. 98% of patients who have attended would refer a friend to it. Following this a 1:1 session will be booked for all patients with one of our team. If you have any questions please contact the Physiotherapy Reception or Women’s Health Team on 01908 995432.

Please complete this form as fully as possible.

Or your GP practice to send to us.
