《施政報告》2022年再次提出修訂《輔助醫療業條例》,容許物理治療師和職業治療師可於指定情況下,免轉介直接服務病人,惟有關修訂遲遲未有提交立法會審議。香港物理治療學會會長彭耀宗表示,物理治療師管理委員會已通過工作小組的方案,建議接受直接求診的物理治療師須有2,000小時的臨床經驗,並需於病人接受10次療程後或接受首次療程後一個月,取得醫生轉介方可以繼續療程。他指已將相關建議書於2022年9月中提交至物理治療師管理委員會考慮

工聯會立法會議員陳穎欣表示,修訂條例可讓物理治療服務更為普及,市民可更快得到適切治療,因此促請政府盡快修例。她指出,現時物理治療師已具有足夠的專業知識,可提供專業的健康教育,及早介入治療並監查社區病人的健康,紓缓整體醫療的壓力,達至《基層醫療發展藍圖》所提出的願景。

工聯會立法會議員鄧家彪認為,物理治療免醫生轉介除了市民直接得益受惠,更能促使物理治療師成為社區醫療網絡重要一員,強化基層醫療體系。

病人家屬阿珍表示,丈夫早前由私家醫生轉介物理治療服務需額外收費,只能到公營醫院求醫。經過漫長的專科輪候時間後,才獲醫生轉介至物理治療師跟進,惟完成公立醫院所訂立的醫療方案後,又要再取得醫生的轉介信,方可再在外尋求物理治療服務,醫療開支因此增加。
