What a First Contact MSK Practitioner can do for you


What a First Contact MSK Practitioner can do for you


Starting 20 September 2019 12:30 through to 20 September 2019 13:30

The NHS Long Term Plan aims to see every patient with a musculoskeletal condition have access to a First Contact Practitioner (FCP) by 2023/24. The aim is to provide faster access to diagnosis and treatment and to support more patients to self-manage their conditions. What does implementation of FCP mean for local health systems? What needs to be in place to gain the maximum benefit?

The webinar will outline the basic principles behind FCP. Two presenters who work in areas which have established effective FCP services will outline the impact it has had on their work, the benefits of the system and give tips on how to make the best of the changes.

Who should attend:
Commissioners, health care practitioners who see MSK patients, MSK service managers and transformation leads. It will be of particular interest to those in areas which are new to FCP or don’t currently have a service. The webinar is not aimed at First Contact Practitioners.
