First Contact Physiotherapy

First Contact Physiotherapists (FCPs) are qualified autonomous clinical practitioners who can assess, diagnose, treat and manage musculoskeletal (MSK) problems and undifferentiated conditions and – where appropriate – discharge a person without a medical referral. FCPs working in this role can be accessed by contacting the practice who can direct patients to them to establish a rapid and accurate diagnosis and management plan to streamline pathways of care.

We have FCP clinics on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Athena Medical Centre. Please contact the reception to book you in to see a Physiotherapist at the practice.
