First Contact Physiotherapist

What is a “First Contact Physiotherapist”?

In our earlier post we mentioned First Contact Physiotherapists (FCPs). Some of our patients have already been helped by our two FCPs.

Sometimes you know that you’d like to see or speak to a physio, but in the past the only way to access that was by referral from a GP.

Now, if you contact the practice and ask for an appointment to discuss a muscular or bone/joint problem, you will be offered a direct appointment with an FCP. They are highly trained and knowledgeable, and are often able to manage problems in their entirety – but they can discuss directly with our GPs if needed.
