What is FCP?

To be classified as an FCP 3 things are required:

  1. The FCP needs to be as accessible as a GP – i.e. no waiting lists
  2. The FCP has access to the same referral pathways as GP’s, secondary care referrals, imaging and review/interpretation of the results
  3. The FCP’s are outward facing with a high level of triage to social interventions (social prescribing)

If these criteria are not being fulfilled the service is not FCP

FCP’s are ‘advanced practitioners’ – educated to M level or equivalent, demonstrating mastery in their clinical field.
