How can I get an appointment?
You must first visit your GP, explain your injury concern and that you are a dancer, teacher, or choreographer and would benefit from dance-specialist treatment. Your GP will refer you to your chosen NHS Dance Injury clinic using the information below.
Please print this information (pdf above) or show this information on your phone during your GP appointment to help them make the referral.
Please note this service is a Secondary service, not Tertiary. Due to this service being an NHS service it is free at the point of use and as an NHS patient it is your legal right to choose where you would like to be referred.
From 1st October 2018, all GP referrals are now done electronically through the e-Referral System (e-RS), previously called Choose & Book. GPs can find the referral option by searching:
