Do you know the difference between an FCP and an MSK Physiotherapist?

An FCP is a first point of contact role based in primary care for MSK conditions. The FCP role is designed to reduce GP workload and NHS pressures. 

FCPs will generally promote self-management and/or arrange appropriate referrals or investigations. 

FCP is not a course of physiotherapy. If a course of Physiotherapy treatment is recommended, then a referral can be made.
