The Telecare, Telehealth and TECS Hub for Health and Care Professionals, Service Users and Carers
UKTelehealthcare is the independent and impartial membership organisation for Telecare and Telehealth professionals, service providers, Clinical Commissioning Groups, Registered Social Landlords, suppliers and organisations with a related professional interest.
Our supply members include most of the UK companies which market the equipment monitoring the safety and well-being of the public, and our provider members include a large number of local authorities as well as private providers. We are dedicated to raising the profile of telecare and telehealth services by making people know how telehealthcare 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, and to raise awareness and encourage the use of technology.

“I have to say, this is my 1st time utilising the service (I have commented before, but not posted a question) and the response has been fantastic. The customer’s son ended up purchasing a device that was recommended by a forum member.”

Bristol TECS MarketPlace a Huge Success!
Our Bristol TECS MarketPlace, held at the spectacular Bristol City Hall on the 23rd November, proved hugely popular with both exhibitors and visitors. Delegates were queueing from before 09.30 for the start of the MarketPlace which was opened at 10.00 by Terry Daffer, Service Director at Bristol City Council.
There were 40 exhibitors from all over Europe including the UK, Ireland, the Netherlands, Israel, France and Switzerland, displaying the latest technology enabled care services and equipment to more than 180 visitors.
A huge “Thank you” to Tracy Bartlett and Elke Small for all the hard work they put into helping this MarketPlace to be such a success, and also to the Conference Office staff and Reception at City Hall for all their help.
Three very interesting and informative presentations were held at the MarketPlace which attracted such a large audience that there was standing room only:
- Minimising The Risk of Missing People through Partnership Working (Buddi, Bristol ECC & Avon & Somerset Police)
- Realising Digital Health (Andy Morley & Dr. Malcom Fisk)
- Supporting Adults Assessment “Getting the right care to the right people at the right time” (Just Checking) Noric Dorn
The presentations given at the TECS MarketPlace will be available here shortly.
