First Contact Physiotherapy

Available Locations:

Our First Contact Physiotherapy (FCP) Service will allow patients to receive input from an expert in the first instance. First contact physiotherapists are advanced physiotherapists who are clinically competent to manage and treat musculoskeletal problems which means you may not need to see a GP.

The specialist physiotherapist can assess you and suggest the most appropriate way to help you. They can also give you advice about any further investigations or treatment you may need and refer you to other services.

  • Joint pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Tendon problems
  • Muscle pain
  • Sports injuries
  • Knee problems
  • Neck pain
