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.
Compass Disability Services aim to enable and empower disabled people and carers to have independence, choice and control in their lives. Members have an opportunity to give their views on issues by attending consultation events, discussion groups and forums. Views are fed back to organisations and agencies that develop services such as local authorities and health services.
It’s free to join and members can participate as much or as little as they like.
A diagnosis of motor neurone disease (MND) can often take a long time to confirm. We provide a range of tests, often on a repeated basis on the nerves and muscles, to diagnose this condition.
If you or a member of your family is diagnosed, we will co-ordinate your care here in the neurology department. We monitor and support you with help from a team of health professionals in speech, diet, eating, breathing support and physiotherapy.
Our community neurological rehabilitation nurse specialist works with patients across Somerset. You can contact her on the number below.
Regular Support Group meetings where people with MND and their carers, family and friends have the opportunity to meet with other people living with the disease and to share the experience in a positive and friendly atmosphere. The meetings are held on the 3rd Thursday of every month from 2.30 – 4.00pm at the Palmers garden centre cafe Yeovil. For more information please contact John Hayward.
