First Contact Physiotherapists

Central Health is currently working with PCNs across the UK to deliver a rapid roll-out of First Contact Physiotherapy services.

This is an exciting journey, and one that will revolutionise the care and treatment patients presenting with MSK conditions and symptoms receive in an NHS setting.

In order to press on with our roll-out of FCP services, we’re recruiting existing FCPs as well as ambitious Band 6 or early Band 7 Physiotherapists who are looking to move into this new area of service delivery and become First Contact Physiotherapists.

As a First Contact Physiotherapist you will deploy your proven physiotherapy skills, be able to make sound judgement calls and be responsible for managing patients through clear and effective care pathways that are designed to achieve the very best outcomes.

Working from GP Surgeries across specific PCNs,  as a First Contact Physiotherapist you will deal with a diverse caseload, work as part of a multi-disciplinary healthcare management team, and provide primary assessment, diagnosis and management options so patients gain a better understanding of their problems and treatment options.

Interested candidates should possess:

  • 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

Successful candidates will be embarking upon a new and 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.
