Abstract

The aim of this study was to establish the views of physiotherapists and general practitioners (GPs) on self-referral and physiotherapy scope of practice. Questionnaires containing a mix of open and closed questions were distributed at the end of a year-long data collection period of a national trial (2003–2005). Responses were analysed by clinician group: GPs and physiotherapists.
