WATCH: This Christmas, don't leave someone out in the cold
Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust has released a Christmas video, encouraging people to look out for older people this festive period.
The message is: 'More than a million older people say they go a month or more without talking to a friend, neighbour or even family.
'By just saying hello or inviting a person to join in, you can save lives.
'This winter, help others to live and stay well - don't leave them out in the cold.'
