First Contact Physiotherapist Practitioner
A first contact practitioner is an experienced physiotherapist who has the advanced skills necessary to assess, diagnose and recommend appropriate treatment or referral for musculoskeletal problems on a patient’s first contact with healthcare services e.g. when they visit their GP surgery.
A First contract Physiotherapist offers expert musculoskeletal assessment and diagnosis, they are also integrated within the multi-disciplinary team at our GP practice. If appropriate, a First contract Physiotherapist may prescribe a programme of exercises, refer for blood tests or X-ray, administer steroid injections, or refer a patient to an appropriate secondary health service e.g. rheumatology or orthopaedics.
Patients with musculoskeletal complaints can be booked in to see a First contract Physiotherapist by a GP with referral.
