What is UKTelehealthcare?
UKTelehealthcare is the fastest growing membership organisation for Telecare and Telehealth professionals, service providers, Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), Registered Social Landlords (RSLs), suppliers and organisations with a related professional interest.
For over twenty years telecare professionals in London and the South East have developed an organisation which was incorporated in 2005 as London Telecare Ltd. Using this successful formula we are now offering membership throughout the UK. Our supply members include most of the UK companies which market the equipment monitoring the safety and well-being of the public. We are dedicated to raising the profile of telecare and telehealth services by making people know how telecare and telehealth products can transform their lives.
Our mission is to support health and care professionals and suppliers to deliver the widest choice and range of appropriate Technology Enabled Care Services (TECS) to patients, service users and their carers.
All members are welcome to join us at our first Annual Integrated Meeting.

Woking Event 12th July
Our Surrey event was held in the HG Wells Centre in Woking and opened by Jonathan Lord, MP for Woking, who gave a very supportive opening speech. It was attended by over 100 people and around 35 exhibitors. Mr. Lord visited the majority of the stands, taking time to find out about the technology on offer. There were also a number of interesting breakout sessions which were led by Brad Rogers (Future Healthcare), John Cruickshank (The IT Health Partnership), Adrian Wolf (MindMe), Pauline Lock (Woking Borough Council) and Haley Maunder (Forest Care Alarm), and Stuart Sheehy (Canary Care).
“Thought the event was very successful from my point of view – we made some good contacts and will pursue them and hopefully we will have some success. I thought the choice of location was excellent as all amenities, including car parking, were all very close to the hall.”
Mike Legate – Director, DV Tec
Our thanks go to our sponsors for the event: Canary Care, CSL, Doro, Green Access and Possum.

|CAIR, the innovative Telecare company, celebrated National Telecare Awareness Day on the 1st June by holding a Creative Lab at their headquarters in West Yorkshire.
12 of the region’s leading voices in Telecare gathered for an exciting and fun-filled day of creativity as they tackled some of the challenges facing the industry.
Sharon Le Corre, the Business Development Manager for CAIR said, “we wanted to explore some of the issues facing Telecare, such as the direction of travel in the industry, and felt that this was a great way to do it. All of the invitees have been chosen for their practical knowledge and their ability to articulate their views. The Creative Lab will provide an environment in which we can delve in and tackle these issues in a fun and creative way.
|We at Wandsworth erected a stall in the main mall of Southside Shopping Centre in Wandsworth where we talked to passers by and carried out demonstrations of equipment(mobile signal permitting). Location – at the northern end of the centre between New Look and The Perfume Shop.
