First Contact Physiotherapy

Three Chequers Medical Practice are delighted to be working with Wiltshire Health and Care and their team of First Contact Physiotherapists who are able to provide prompt specialist orthopaedic assessments in order to diagnose and triage musculoskeletal conditions within our surgery. First Contact Physiotherapists  can refer directly for Xray, Ultrasound or MRI scans. They provide tailored advice and exercise to help patients manage their condition independently or refer if indicated to secondary care for further investigations and ongoing management. The reception team can book patients an initial telephone appointment, usually on the same day, without the need to see the GP or a referral. Should a face-to-face appointment be necessary, this will be arranged in consultation with the therapist, again at short notice.
