First Contact Physiotherapist/Practitioner

If you have a new problem with your back, neck, bones, muscles or joints, you can see our specialist First Contact Physiotherapist instead of a GP.

This gives you faster access to expert diagnosis and you’ll leave with the advice and exercises you need to start tackling the problem.

The FCP will…

  • Assess you and diagnose what’s happening
  • Give expert advice on how best to manage your condition
  • Recommend exercises and other approaches to deal with the issue
  • Refer you on to physiotherapy or other specialist services, if necessary

Nationally, just 5% of patients choose to see a GP afterwards and 96% would recommend the service to friends or family.
