First Contact Physiotherapist (FCP)

Did you know we now employ a First Contact Physiotherapist (FCP).  This means that rather than you having to wait to see the doctor first with your bone, joint or muscle pain you can now have direct access to the Physiotherapist.  Our new FCP, Roger Langridge, will be joining the practice on the 12th May 2020.  Roger will be working over 3 practices, Calverton, Highcroft and Stenhouse.  

The FCP role will allow you to be seen by the right person at the right time in your rehabilitation pathway so that you can achieve ours desired outcome in less time.  The appointments will be for 20 minutes where you will be assessed and the appropriate treatment pathway will be decided upon.  The appointments are not for hands on treatment as such but the majority of musculoskeletal problems can be sorted out with advice and exercise prescription allowing you to self manage and improve your symptoms.  If you require onward referral to specialist services or for clinical tests such as x rays or bloods you can be referred directly by the FCP.  What we are seeing nationally in pilot studies is that after patients see an FCP, just 5% of patients choose to see a GP afterwards and 96% would recommend the service to friends and family.

If you feel you have bone, joint or muscle pain and want to see the FCP please speak to the reception staff.
