First Contact Practitioner Service

Posted by: stephenjackson4 - Posted on:

When booking an appointment you may now speak to a First Contact Practitioner (FCP).

An FCP is an experienced physiotherapist who has the advanced skills necessary to assess, diagnose and recommend appropriate treatment or referral for musculoskeletal (MSK) problems.

An FCP may prescribe a programme of exercises, refer for blood tests or x-ray, administer steroid injections, or refer a patient to an appropriate secondary health service.
