There are concerns about the future of a scheme which it's claimed has
eased the pressure on GPs in East Yorkshire.
Support is being given to vulnerable and elderly patients to stop them
visiting their doctor unnecessarily, but the funding is due
to run out shortly. Katy Austin reports.
In Bridlington, there's a large elderly population,
and a severe shortage of GPs. Doctors say some patients use
precious appointment time to discuss complaints medicine can't cure.
They're related to poverty, they're related to loneliness,
being cold and we've found that we weren't able
Well, local council and health services had an idea.
They used a pot of government cash to fix things making people
unwell, poor or lonely. For 77-year-old retired builder

I just need to press buttons and I get my system on.
Neil was one of the first to benefit.
319 people aged 75 or over, were told they could get help -
following a phone consultation. 75 of them got health and lifestyle
advice, 38 were helped with accommodation or heating.
And 182 got benefits advice. That resulted in more than ?300,000
being paid out they hadn't known they could claim.
I asked this doctor what impact it had.
I haven't been seeing my patients as much so that patients that I have
been seeing who are coming maybe quite frequently and I was
struggling to answer their needs, are now finding alternative sources.
But the government's spending watchdog last month said
there wasn't evidence projects like this were stopping
Those behind this project says it just needs more time.
It may ultimately down the line stop people attending hospital.
At this early stage, that hasn't shown that position,
but there is no reason to think that in the future if we continue
to develop that, that wouldn't start to have that impact.
Health bosses are desperately hoping to get more funding so they can
expand this scheme across the East Riding.
They say anything that could take pressure off doctors is priceless.
