Introduction

The Health and Wellbeing Hub provides a warm and welcoming environment for those living with a long-term condition or living with someone with a lifelong health condition and is a vital tool to further the Yeovil Hospital ethos of exceptional care for all patients.

The hub is easily accessible to those in need of advice and support and offer regular supported conversations, and signposting to other resources to enable self-management, by providing relevant information and advice.

Yeovil District hospital is the first hospital that Macmillan have funded for the hub to talk about every long-term health condition and be able to help them.

Engagement is a friendly and welcoming team where we gain feedback to help improve on the services we run. We gain feedback in many different ways and would love to hear from you. If you have something you wish to share or discuss, we are here to listen and help.
