GP Support Services

In addition to the clinics and services offered by the team at the health centre, there are several visiting professionals offering additional services to our patients.

First Contact Physiotherapy (FCP)  

The First Contact Practitioner is a physiotherapist who works independently within our practice to assess, diagnose and plan the management of patients with new presentations of musculoskeletal conditions.  The FCP will support the GPs by offering a second opinion and advice where required.  The clinician will aim to manage your condition within the initial consultation.  If you require ongoing physiotherapy you will be offered onward referral to the core physiotherapy service.  Our FCP runs a clinic at Keith Health Centre every second Tuesday.

Alternatively, patients with muscle or joint problems can also self-refer for physiotherapy by telephoning  tel: 0800 917 9390.  This is a non emergency service for advice, information and assessment of muscle and joint problems.

PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO PRESSURE ON NHS SERVICES DURING THE COVID PANDEMIC,  MSK OUT-PATIENT PHYSIOTHERAPY SERVICES ARE CURRENTLY RESTRICTED.  PLEASE CONSIDER THE SELF HELP GUIDANCE BELOW.

The frailty nurse may make contact by telephone, face to face appointment, or if required, via a home visit.
