Health Connections Mendip is a free NHS service that supports local people with their health, wellbeing and social welfare. In Glastonbury, there is a Health Connector who works closely with the two doctor’s surgeries, providing one to one support with a wide range of non-medical issues. You can refer yourself to the service, or ask your GP to refer you.
HCM also supports people to set up local support groups and other projects, runs local Talking Cafes and delivers educational sessions such as a Healthy Lifestyles programme. The HCM website hosts a comprehensive online directory of information and services in Mendip, as well as lots of useful resources covering areas such as sleep, stress management, diet and physical activity.
