A Note About GP Referrals

Do I need a GP referral?

Fitter Feet for Life is a private practice and is anyone can book an appointment for foot examination and treatment. There is no need to be referred by a GP.

Where the treatment is to be paid for by private health insurance, the insurance company may require a GP referral to support a claim. You can download an example referral form.          Download         You may even be able to fill it in on your computer.

The form may also be useful if you see a GP about some condition which he or she judges would best be treated by a podiatrist, but that either no appropriate services are available in the local area - or maybe you just want to be treated privately. In either of these cases, a referral from a GP would give Fitter Feet for Life useful information.
