Putting relationships at the heart of the NHS

Living with physical or mental health conditions can be a long road, but our relationships with partners, family and friends are what make the journey better. 

But when we need our relationships most, the effects of living with a health condition can really pile on the pressure.

Worryingly, our relationships are often ignored in the NHS. Support is out there, but too few people get access to it. 

That needs to change.

We're calling on the government to put relationships at the heart of the NHS, making relationship support available to everyone who needs it.
