A medical referral from your general practitioner is necessary only if: You have been injured at work and your case is being managed by workcover; or your treatment is covered by Veterans Affairs; or you are claiming your treatment expenses through a 3rd party claim.
Your physiotherapist is also able to refer you on to other medical and allied health professionals where it is appropriate.
