Dr Lisa Adams and Dr Sara MacDermott talk to senior physiotherapists Judith Dawson and Joanne Roberts about how they became involved in physiotherapy in primary care and the roles of physiotherapists in this setting, including First Contact Practitioners. Having been part of enhancing primary care access to physiotherapy throughout the years, it’s great to get their perspectives on the role now and what it might look like in the future. They take the opportunity to get their top tips for managing knee osteoarthritis and low risk back pain.
