Loneliness GP strategy announced

On Monday 15th, the Prime Minister launched a cross-Government strategy to tackle loneliness.

As part of the plan GPs will be able to refer patients experiencing loneliness to community activities and voluntary services such as cooking lessons, walking groups and art lessons, known as ‘social prescribing’.

The Government has also partnered with Royal Mail in Liverpool, New Malden and Whitby in a scheme that will see postal workers check up on lonely people in isolated areas during their delivery rounds.
