Leg Club celebrates second anniversary
PUBLISHED: 17:00 20 July 2017
A health club which provides treatment to people in a group setting in Nailsea is celebrating its second anniversary.
Nailsea District Leg Club enables people from Tyntesfield Medical Group to access specialist assessments and treatments from nurses for a variety of leg conditions including circulation problems, leg ulcers and skin conditions.
Volunteers also provide transport to and from the club, which is held at the tithe barn every Wednesday from 9am to noon.
The service is run by nursing staff, GP practices and the NSCP and it has more than 150 members who attend for treatment each week.
Leg clubs are based on the award-winning healthcare model founded by former district nurse Ellie Lindsay.
They also help to prevent social isolation which is often experienced by patients with leg ulcers.
Lynn Bullock from The Leg Club Foundation visited the club to celebrate its success and present staff with a laptop to help with administration.
