First Contact Physiotherapy Practitioner

We have a First Contact Practitioner (FCP) attached to the practice. They offer physiotherapy appointments for patients with musculoskeletal conditions.

First Contact Physiotherapy Practitioners  are highly experienced physiotherapists and able to assess and manage patients with musculoskeletal issues. You will get a 30 minute appointment giving you much longer than a traditional GP appointment. In this appointment the FCP can diagnose, arrange investigations where needed and expertly treat your issue.

If you have musculoskeletal issues and would feel you would benefit from seeing a FCP then please call the practice and the receptionist can book you in.
