Physiotherapists will ensure that you will receive the most up to date and effective evidence based treatments for your problem. Some physiotherapists are also qualified to administer injections or prescribe drugs without seeing your GP or pharmacist. For information about pain relief, please visit

    I tried to fill in the form for Go2Physio but I can not complete it because on the GP Practice section only comes up with Broughton, Eccles and Irlam, Orsall and Claremont, Swinton, Walkden and Little Hulton. My GP is at Clarendon surgery, Pendleton Gateway which is not on the list? My podiatrist at Pendleton Gateway recommended me to try go2physio to help with Planter fasciitis, Posterior Tibial which is starting to set off my sciatica which is an old injury from snowboarding.

    You can still be referred to Go2Physio via your GP so, if you are having trouble accessing the self-referral website, please speak to your GP
