Living and feeling better can start with a simple step-connecting. Health Connections Mendip is provided by your Mendip GP practices to improve your health and wellbeing.
An outpatient hospital-based interactive exercise and education group programme aimed at encouraging self-management of FMS. Please note you must have a clinical diagnosis of fibromyalgia. For referral advice please contact Julie Russell or Sandi Derham. This service accepts only GP referrals. We offer support in following evidence-based self-management strategies to manage fatigue and other symptoms of CFS/ME. We occasionally run support sessions for carers/supporters. Most people who attend this service have noticed that their symptoms and confidence in managing their condition improves.
We are a small, friendly and positive group of people who meet informally once a month for mutual support and to exchange tips for recovery. Please call Carol for meeting times.
We meet on the first Wednesday of the month at Binegar Memorial Hall, Binegar, BA3 4UR from 10.30am – 12.30pm, and on the 3rd Monday of the month at Crispin Community Cenre, 4 Leigh Road, Street, BA16 0HA from 3.30-4.30pm.
