Physiotherapy Self Referral
Patients can now find full details of how to complete the self-referral process for Physiotherapy on the SEPT website via the following link:
On this page it explains how patients can complete a Physiotherapy Self-Referral Form themselves and then email or post it to SEPT. Or, patient's can simply phone SEPT directly to discuss the self-referral process, if they would prefer to do so by calling: 01279 827404 (lines open 09:00 – 16:00 Monday to Friday).
We are now using text messages to contact our patients. This could be confirmation/reminders of appointments or to ask patients to contact the surgery for example.
Please ensure that we have up to date contact details for you and your family.
Please contact reception if you do not wish to receive text messages from us.
