The First Contact Physiotherapy (FCP) service allows patients to book in directly to speak to a Practice based Physiotherapist. If you have a problem, such as muscle, joint or back pain, the FCP can provide a specialist assessment without seeing the GP first.
The majority of aches and pains recover well with the right advice, the FCP will be able to advise you how best to manage your injury or pain, which exercises might be best and how to manage work and your activities. If there is need to refer you on for a GP opinion or for blood tests or Xrays, the FCP can organise this too.
In order to book an appointment just contract you practice in the usual way and ask to speak to the First Contact Physiotherapist.
