Information for Referrers


As Rachel Bootsma is a physiotherapist, a referral to The Lymphoedema Clinic is not required. However, a referral with patient information and imaging (if any) is always useful.

Care Plans

Rachel Bootsma does accept patients under care plans. However, please make the patient aware that the care plan does not cover the entire fee–there will be considerable out of pocket expense. Care plan rebates are based on a short physiotherapy appointment whereas appointments at The Lymphoedema Clinic are usually an hour long.

Department of Veterans Affairs

Rachel Bootsma is a DVA approved provider of lymphoedema services under the usual referal arrangements for DVA patients.
