Health Connections - West Mendip Primary Care Network
There are lots of ways you can receive support and find out about local opportunities to benefit your health and wellbeing. The Health Connections social prescribing and health coaching team are based within a health and wellbeing hub that supports all 5 local GP practices in West Mendip. They work closely with a team of Care Navigators, Care Co-ordinators, clinicians including a GP, clinical pharmacists, occupational therapists and a hospital discharge reviewer.
Health Connectors can support anyone aged 18-100+ to connect with local groups and projects, improve emotional wellbeing, make lifestyle changes, access carers’ support, secure financial assistance, find support for addictions, access digital help and more. They also work in partnership with health and social care professionals to assist people who are living with complex health issues such as dementia, cancer and frailty, and need help to access the right care and support.
If you’d like to learn more, you could start by searching our online directory which lists a wide range of groups, projects and services in your area. You could also join one of our regular Talking Cafes in Street, Wells or Glastonbury. Many people benefit from attending our Be Healthy, Be Happy group sessions which we run regularly in different locations and which cover sleep, eating well, physical activity and emotional wellbeing. Our aim is to support you in making sustainable changes that matter to you.
You may prefer to see a Health Connector for a series of one-to-one appointments, which could be in person or over the phone. You might even be interested in volunteering in your community and training as a Community Connector. We can work with you to identify and take the right steps forward.
