Link between relationships and health is ignored in the NHS, finds Relate
The charity Relate is today (Tuesday 24th March) calling for relationships to be put at the heart of the NHS to improve health and wellbeing and reduce pressure on the public purse.
A report by the charity and think tank, New Philanthropy Capital, finds that the link between relationships and health is too often ignored in the NHS. Relate is calling for good quality relationships with families, partners and friends to be put at the heart of the health service. They argue that this will improve health and wellbeing for the 15 million people in the UK living with long-term physical or mental health conditions.
