Back Pain Self Referrals.

If you are in UK you may be interested in this news article in the Guardian today.

It refers to people with back pain being able to refer themselves to an NHS physio and cutting out Dr referrals.

Straight to the specialist.

I wonder if it will help to speed up the time it takes to get started on physio treatment? When I first went for physio via a Dr referral I was on a 3 month waiting list. When you are in pain 3 months is a long time. Physio did not help me much unfortunately but I think people should be able to see one quicker than that to see if it can help.
