  • Musculoskeletal (MSK) Practitioners offer a range of benefits to patients and employers when appointed to a role in general practice.

    Research in this area demonstrates an improvement in the quality of care, reductions in referrals to secondary care and a more tailored service to better meet the needs of the local population.

    Our guide “Recruiting an MSK Practitioner in General Practice” provides more information about the benefits that can and have been achieved along with guidance on how to recruit a practitioner.

  • An important part of the work we do is to engage with school students and enthuse them about careers in medicine and careers in healthcare. We do this in a number of different ways and often need the support from First Contact Physiotherapists with activity in the local community.

    To find out more about what we do, how you can get involved and how we can support you, please visit our schools page.
