Take action on loneliness in Scotland

Loneliness has become an epidemic, affecting as many as 9 million adults in the UK. Being lonely can increase risk of an early death by as much as 50%.

GPs and their teams have a unique opportunity to take action on loneliness as all too often, they are the only human contact that lonely and isolated people have. 

Join us in our call to help GPs tackle loneliness.
