First Contact Practitioner
The Practice now has the services of a 'First Contact Practitioner' twice a week, whose role in primary care is to access patients with soft tissue, muscle and joint pain and to decide on the most appropriate management pathway. FCP's are practitioners with expertise in the assessment and management of Musculoskeletal(MSK) conditions. They can organise investigations, medications and onward services. Reception may direct you to them if appropriate.
Social Prescribing Link Worker
We now have a Social Prescribing Link Working at the Practice. The main aim of their role is to help people to improve their health and well-being by connecting them to activities in the community. Line Workers connect community and activity groups to work, debt or housing advice.
