First Contact Physio
What is a first contact physio?
A first contact physio (FCP) is a physiotherapist who is professionally qualified to treat patients without a referral from a GP or other healthcare professional. FPCs provide the first point of contact whereby those who visit a GP for a musculoskeletal (MSK) problem will instead have an appointment with an FCP physiotherapist.
