First Contact Physiotherapist

First Contact Physiotherapists (FCPs) are experts in the assessment and management of Musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions.

Based within both Forres GP Practices, a typical FCP appointment involves assessment, diagnosis and first-line treatment. You can book with the FCP directly and you do not need a referral from a GP.

If you call with symptoms of an MSK problem our care navigation team may offer to book you an appointment directly with the FCP.

FCPs can also refer patients for a course of physiotherapy treatment, request investigations such as X-rays or make referrals into secondary care services. Some FCPs are also able to provide steroid joint injections, prescriptions and sick notes.
