Relate, the UK’s largest provider of relationship support, ran The Best Medicine? campaign on the importance of relationships for health and wellbeing.  They argue that policy should consider the person in the context of their couple, family and social relationships and draw on these relationships as an asset for health and wellbeing. Putting relationships at the heart of our healthcare plans will help to prevent, delay or minimise the costs of responding to long term health conditions, improve recovery rates, and ultimately contribute to a more effective and efficient health system.
