1. Community MSK Physiotherapy Services
Physiotherapy Matters have a long history of providing Musculoskeletal NHS Community Services within the North East. Our face to face services include evidence based treatments and our practice is audited against current guidelines relating to musculoskeletal disorders. Clinicians are supported and supervised at regular intervals to ensure our high standards are maintained. Patients are encouraged to take a central role in their own recovery and we place great emphasis on our role in increasing general exercise levels and promoting healthy lifestyle changes
2. First Contact Physiotherapy
First Contact Physiotherapists (FCP’s) are qualified autonomous clinical practitioners who are able to assess, diagnose, treat and discharge a person without a medical referral. They have developed advanced competencies to be able to request and interpret appropriate investigations, offer soft tissue and joint injections and write fitness for work reports. The implementation of these roles is a key feature of the NHS Long Term Plan.
3. MSK Education Workshops
Physiotherapy Matters can offer you bespoke training to meet the demands of patients presenting Musculoskeletal disorders in Primary Care. These sessions will be pitched at a level to enable first contact clinicians to assess and manage patients in short appointment times.
The sessions can be delivered within your GP practice and we can be flexible on the duration and time of training. All delegates will receive hand outs and the content of the sessions can be flexible to the learning needs of the group
