Neuropathy Support Group

The Neuropathy Support Group held its first meeting at the Frome Medical Centre on 15th October. 

Peripheral neuropathy is a relatively common condition that affects around one in 50 people in the UK. The condition becomes more common as you get older, and has been estimated to affect almost one in every 10 people who are 55 or over to some degree.

The first meeting, which was led by a patient with neuropathy, proved an excellent opportunity for the 20 odd people attending to meet, discuss mutual problems and suggest potential solutions.

It was agreed it was a most valuable experience and future meetings will take place on the 3rd Thursday of every month, 1.00-3.00pm at the Frome Medical Centre.

Next meeting is on Thursday 19th November at 1.00pm when there will be a guest speaker, Shiva Gnanamoorthy who is a physiotherapist from Somerset Partnership.

Why not come along, you will be most welcome – no need to book. For further details contact Health Connections Mendip on 01373 468368.
