Collaborative MSK Physiotherapy Redesign - Seeking PCN representatives
We are seeking PCN representation at a Collaborative MSK physiotherapy pathway redesign workshop. The aim of the workshop is to develop an integrated high-quality pathway for MSK physiotherapy between primary care, secondary care and community care. The objectives are to deliver an improved service; a single point of access (SPA) to the MSK physiotherapy service for patients and GPs across Cambridgeshire & Peterborough; and, to include an offer of First Contact Physiotherapists (FCPs) to the 21 PCNs.
To do this, we would appreciate representation from PCNs to feed into the MSK redesign programme and to give their thoughts on if, when and how FCPs fit into their PCNs.
