New Services – First Contact Practitioner (FCP)

We are piloting a First Contact Practitioner service in some of our South Reading Practices. The pilot will run initially from the 4th Sept to the 1st Nov 2019. The pilot will be for patients presenting with a musculoskeletal (MSK) problem who are offered an appointment with an Advanced Level Physiotherapist (ALP) as an alternative to seeing a GP. This will improve your access to the right care, at the right time from the right person.

An ALP is usually an experienced practice physiotherapist who has the advanced skills necessary to assess, diagnose and manage MSK problems
