Physiotherapy guidance and cost calculator

General Practice is currently experiencing an unprecedented workload and recruitment crisis. With an ageing population, the increase in the numbers of people with multi morbidities, and practices in many parts of the country finding it difficult to recruit more GPs, the idea of developing multi-disciplinary general practice teams can look increasingly attractive.

In addition to the potential workload benefits, the presence of a physiotherapist in a practice can provide patients and the practice management team with more options as to how they provide care to their patient list and potentially benefits patients by allowing them swift access to a specialist.

Physiotherapists have the clinical expertise to autonomously assess, diagnose and treat patients with a range of conditions including: musculoskeletal, neurological and respiratory conditions. Musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions alone are estimated to account for 20-30% of GP consultations.
