The provision of physiotherapy services in Barnet is the responsibility of the local national health service.

Nationally, the Department is implementing a therapies improvement programme to improve the available information and data management, and improve access to services provided by allied health professionals. This includes the development of a tool designed to improve access to physiotherapy services.

The Department is also collaborating with the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy to pilot introducing self-referral to physiotherapy.
