First Contact Practitioner (Fcp) Triage Service Therapy

This is a fast access assessment clinic with a First Contact Practitioner (FCP) to determine if you need physiotherapy or further assessment, perhaps with another specialist.

Your FCP will assess you, give advice, re-assure you and ensure you’re on the right path to get back to health ASAP. 

Your FCP will also make sure you are referred for scans or x-rays if appropriate, as well as contacting your GP or Consultant with recommendations for your future care.

If you’re unsure who to speak to about your pain or injury, or you struggle to get an appointment to see your GP and you have a soft tissue, muscle, nerve or joint pain then our service is perfect for you.

Even minor issues are suitable for assessment so that they don’t develop into a bigger problem.  The most common issues we see are:

  • All soft tissue injuries, sprains, strains or sports injuries - upper and lower limb
  • Arthritis – any joint
  • Any spinal pain including lower back pain, thoracic and neck pain
  • Arm/leg symptoms, with or without neurological symptoms – e.g. pins and needles
  • Mobility changes
  • Issues following orthopaedic surgery
  • Headaches

Remember, we have the clinical expertise to assess, diagnose and treat patients with a wide range of MSK conditions

Therefore we’re able to let you know if you need any professional help, or if you need no further intervention at all!
