    FCP roles require advanced skills across many areas based upon the principles of shared decision-making and person-centred care.

     

    Please click here to view a flyer from the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) which shows the benefits of employing FCPs in primary care.

     

    In England, the First Contact Practitioners and Advanced Practitioners in Primary Care: (Musculoskeletal) Roadmap has been developed by Health Education England (HEE) and was released in October 2020. This is a document that provides a clear educational pathway from undergraduate to Advanced Practice for clinicians wishing to pursue a career in primary care and can be viewed here: https://www.hee.nhs.uk/our-work/primary-care/first-contact-practitioners-advanced-practitioners-musculoskeletal

     

    The Roadmap outlines the education, training and skills required in order to enable the development of a portfolio and to be registered as an FCP. It is aligned with the MSK core capabilities framework released in 2018, which can be viewed here: https://www.csp.org.uk/system/files/musculoskeletal_framework2.pdf
