Health Education England, together with South, Central and West Commissioning Support Unit, has developed an easy-to-use tool to support clinicians, managers and commissioners in their efforts to forecast and monitor the impacts of MSK self-referral to first contact practitioners (FCP).
It is called the MSK First Point of Contact Model.
The model would be useful for anyone considering:
- Writing a business case for a first contact practitioner service
- Evaluating the impact of an already established FCP service
- Planning a service improvement initiative within a MSK health system
You can find and download the model from ARMA’s Network Resources page.
