In the public service treatment is free following referral from a consultant or a GP. You will have to go on a waiting list. There is no standard fee in private practice due to competition authority. For example, fees can be dictated by:
- the location of practice;
- whether it is an initial or follow-up visit;
- the duration of treatment;
- the prescription and supply of specialist materials e.g. orthotics (customised insoles).
