Welcome to our page for MSK-Practitioners/Physiotherapists.
Whether you’re a student or a fully qualified MSK practitioner, we believe there will be something of interest for you on this page (if there isn’t please tell us what you’d like to see here).
MSK practitioners play an important role in primary care and are increasingly involved in providing first contact care in General Practices and primary care hubs. The success of MSK practitioners working in primary care is heavily reliant on having the right framework in place for recruitment as well as for on-going training and support of professionals working in these settings.
