First Contact Physiotherapists
The Role of First Contact physiotherapists (FCP's) in primary care is to assess patients with soft tissue, muscle and joint pain and support patients to decide on the most appropriate management pathway. You do not need to see your GP first as the FCPs are expert in the assessment of these conditions and are able to request investigations such as xrays and blood tests if it is required. FCP's are physiotherapists with expertise in the assessment and management of Musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions. They may also be known as an Advanced Practice Physiotherapist (APP) or MSK practitioners.
Contact our practice on 01273 555999 to book an initial telephone appointment.
