Mental Health

What does Frome Medical Practice offer?

Frome Medical Practice has a team of two Mental Health Nurse Practitioners who offer support to patients with mild to moderate anxiety and depression. Appointments are available Monday to Friday, with the flexibility of early morning and evening appointments too.

We work closely with Health Connections Mendip as we recognise the strong links to health and lifestyle choices and engaging in the wider community and how this can positively  affect and help to  maintain changes to ones mental health. 

Our role also involves liaising with health visitors, midwives, district  nurses and schools as we endeavour to work together to support your mental health needs.
