Physiotherapy Roles

Physiotherapy is a degree based healthcare profession which help people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice. Physiotherapists are regulated by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) is their professional body.

National Initiatives have already show how a broad range of professions, including physiotherapists, can contribute to providing safe, effective, timely care and across the Wessex region physiotherapy advanced clinical practice roles in primary care such as Musculoskeletal (MSK) First Contact Practitioners (FCPs) are starting to emerge.

The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, Royal College of General Practitioners and the British Medical Association have developed a guide on the implementation of First Contact Physiotherapy posts in General Practice which provides further information on the benefits of this emerging new role.
