Physiotherapists

Physiotherapists who use our pool do so as part of their practice, and will handle their own accounting.  You may nominate the physiotherapist of your choice.  Appointments must always be made through the physiotherapist office to verify availability.   For private clients, your health fund may contribute towards these costs.   A referral for the pool can be provided by your doctor or treating psiotherapist.   Physiotherapy / hydrotherapy consultations are covered by Workers Compensation, CTP and Medicare EPC and will require the appropriate doctor's referral.
