Musculoskeletal First Contact Practitioners 

Are now working within your GP practice. They are clinicians whose expertise is in dealing with bone, joint or muscle pains. 

You can book an appointment with them directly through your GP reception staff without needing to see your GP first. 

They have the knowledge and ability to assess you and diagnose what’s happening. 

They can advise on how to best manage your condition and refer you onto specialist services if necessary.
