Access to care

Since the early 90s, the public has been able to consult a private practice physiotherapist without first obtaining a medical referral.

It should be noted that a patient must obtain a referral before seeing a physical rehabilitation therapist (P.R.T.). As such, patients must first see a physiotherapist or doctor before being treated by a T.R.P.
