First Contact Physiotherapists (FCP)

We are looking for experienced, ambitious and independent minded Band 6 or early Band 7 Physiotherapists to join our team of First Contact Physiotherapists (FCPs) delivering Primary Care MSK services in the Derby area.

Working in a local GP setting, as an FCP you will be the first point of clinical contact for patients presenting with MSK conditions or symptoms.

You will be responsible for a diverse caseload, provide primary assessment, diagnosis and management options, and support patients to gain a better understanding of their problems and treatment pathway.

Successful candidates will have:

  • Advanced clinical practice skills
  • The ability to self-manage
  • Good communication, organisational and time management skills
  • Good IT skills
  • HCPC and CSP registration
  • Post-graduate/Masters level qualifications – desirable but not essential

First Contact Physiotherapy is an important development in clinical care, and Central Health is leading its implementation throughout Derbyshire.

The successful candidates will therefore be embarking upon an exciting career path and in return will receive a competitive salary, a compressive range of employee benefits, support towards personal development and the opportunity to progress and build a bright future within Central Health.
