This information is not held.
The latest data available is from the 2011 census, which recorded 3,318 people 70 and over living alone.
There is no data available to answer this question as loneliness is not recorded as a primary diagnosis. Treatment may be provided for symptoms where loneliness is a factor, such as anxiety or depression, but this would not be recorded in a format which can be reported.
