First Contact Physiotherapist

Our team is working within our local NHS Primary Care Network to deliver First Contact Physiotherapy services to the local community.

The development of First Contact Physiotherapy (FCP) services across the UK allows people with musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions to access MSK physiotherapy expertise at the start of the pathway, ensuring timely access to diagnosis, early management and onward referral if necessary. 

If you are experiencing muscular or joint aches and pains then instead of seeing your GP you can book in to see your FCP at your local surgery (or hub)

Our FCP’s are skilled specialists and will check you can be referred on for physio treatment or whether you need further investigations or review of medication for example. 

Our team is based within the Erewash PCN at Sawley Medical Centre.
