Do I need a GP chiropractic referral?

At The City of London Chiropractor Clinic we actively encourage a working relationship with GPs. With your consent we will write to your GP to let them know you have attended the clinic for treatment and when you have been discharged. A minority of patients prefer for their GP not to be notified and in such cases we maintain complete confidentiality by not corresponding with your GP.

The need for a GP chiropractic referral is based solely on your preferred method of payment:

If you are paying for treatment yourself there is no need to get a referral from your GP to see a City of London Chiropractor.

If you are using a private health insurance policy to pay for your chiropractic treatment, many companies require a GP chiropractic referral to authorise your claim. Our advice to patients wishing to utilise an insurance policy is to check with your insurer first to avoid any future issues.
