Do I need a referral from my doctor?

No. Your Osteopath is a primary healthcare professional, and is trained to recognise problems that are unsuitable for Osteopathic treatment, and will communicate with other health professionals if the need should arise, to ensure you receive the best health care possible.


You don't need to see your doctor if you are paying for your own treatment, or are claiming reimbursement from a health fund.


If you wish to claim reimbursement from a third party such as insurer or government office, please check with them if they require you to have a referral from your doctor.
