New Service - Physio First
A first contact practitioner (FCP) is an experienced physiotherapist who has the advanced skills necessary to assess, diagnose and recommend appropriate treatment or referral for musculoskeletal (MSK) problems on a patient’s first contact with healthcare services e.g when they visit their GP surgery.
Patients with MSK complaints can be booked in to see an FCP by a GP receptionist or other healthcare professional. An FCP offers expert MSK assessment and diagnosis, however, is also integrated within the multi-disciplinary team in each GP Practice. If appropriate an FCP may prescribe a programme of exercises, refer for blood tests or X-ray, administer steroid injections, utilise local services or refer a patient to an appropriate secondary health service e.g. rheumatology or orthopaedics.
Please speak to our Reception Team who can book you an appointment.
Meet the team - Jim, Kayleigh and Steve.
In line with GP contract requirements, all patients at Colne Valley Group Practice have been assigned a named GP. Please be assured that this does not affect your choice of clinician to see at the surgery in any way. If you wish to know the name of your named GP, please contact reception or ask at your next consultation.
