Key updates now available from the YOURhealth Team.
Whilst dealing with the on-going devastating pandemic, it is easy to recognise the ongoing challenges that loneliness and isolation has on our population, with it being a threat that continues to dominate the population and is growing rapidly daily, always made worse in the winter months. As a result of this challenge, the Social Prescribing, YOURhealth team have designed an Isolation and Loneliness booklet for service users, carers and patients.
Please share this booklet as widely as you can and we hope it helps support those who may be battling with loneliness and isolation and will hopefully be a daily reminder of how they can gain help, support, and reach out for help if needed.
There are many services available across the East Riding that can provide befriending, guidance, and are available to reach out to, and we hope this guide will offer even the smallest comfort, alongside the offer of a referral into the Social Prescribing service which can be made 7 days a week.
A copy of the most recent Impact Report for 2019/20, and the Loneliness and Isolation Booklet is also availabl to view below, and also available online by visiting www.nhs-health-trainers.co.uk.
