Congratulations go to David Cann, Clinical Specialist Physiotherapist (Lincoln), and Team Lead Physios MSK, Helen Morris (Grantham) and Munya Tsuro (Pilgrim), who have all successfully completed their non-medical prescribing (NMP) courses.
David said their new skills will really help to benefits patients in the future.
“As independent prescribers in physiotherapy we hope to be able to prescribe to help patients manage their problems to supplement our practice,” he said.
“Going forwards there are national and local plans for physiotherapists to work as first contact practitioners within GP practices. The aim is for patients with musculoskeletal problems to be assessed and managed early by appropriately trained practitioners, and the ability to prescribe is a positive addition to this role.”
