First Contact Practitioner

Expert musculoskeletal (MSK) clinicians with a background in physiotherapy.

FCPs are able to assess and diagnose joint and muscle problems, can refer for further tests & investigations and can refer for specialist input or a longer course of physiotherapy if needed.

You can book directly for an assessment with an FCP if you have a joint or muscle problem without needing to see a GP first.
