Health Connections Mendip is a health and wellbeing service available to patients. Patients can talk to a health connector at the surgery to find out about local activities, support and services available, and can also arrange one-to-one appointments to speak to a Connector. During these appointments a Health Connector will listen to your health story and assist you with setting health-related goals which are meaningful to you. Health Connectors also support you to make positive changes that last. You can access the service by t: 01373 468 368, e: firstname.lastname@example.org or visit us at: www.healthconnectionsmendip.org
