Hire me! The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy has released an online tool that makes it easy to show GPs how much they would save by employing a physiotherapist in their primary care practice.
Physiotherapists registered with the CSP can use this tool to calculate how much money a GP would save – and the dollars can add up quickly.
Andy Lord, CSP project manager for Physiotherapy Works, gives this example:
‘They can then go to a GP and say “look, if you took us on we could save you £20,000 in the next six months and you could see your patients for five minutes longer”, or whatever the calculated benefits might be.’
Is this a tool you would use? Have you struggled to convince GPs to hire you? Let us know in the comments section below!
