The FCP service allows patients contacting their GP surgeries with musculoskeletal pain to have a consultation quickly by a specialist musculoskeletal physiotherapist. They will be able to assess, diagnose and provide information on appropriate individualised rehabilitation and management. They work very closely with GP's and Nurse Practitioners to ensure the patient gets the best level of care, assisting with any medications, investigations and referrals where deemed required.
To access the FCP service, please raise a request via Ask My GP and you will be triaged to the appropriate service.
