Worryingly, loneliness has become a public health epidemic. GPs across the UK see millions of lonely and socially isolated patients each year. Loneliness and social isolation cannot be treated with medicines, or referred for hospital treatment; yet they must be addressed if GPs are to deliver the best care for patients.

Tackling loneliness is about more than medicine and that is why we community action plans to tackle it in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. We need action to be taken to ensure GPs and their teams are able to work with the wider community to provide the most appropriate care to lonely patients.
