Members’ Forum Webinar 12th January 2021
We held our first 2021 UKTelehealthcare Members’ Forum on Tuesday 12th of January which included presentations from our members at Southwark, TeleAlarm, CSL and Oysta. Jonathan Shaw and Clive Gilbert from Policy Connect also gave a presentation about the work of the All Party Parliamentary Group Assistive Technology (APPGAT) and the opportunities for members to become involved in shaping the policy through the APPG and the planned Smart Homes and Independent Living Commission.
Thank you to Phil Bridges from Oysta who stepped in at the last minute to host a lively and light-hearted interactive session which, at least for a short time, took our minds off the pandemic and how it’s not only affecting our industry but each one of us personally. Thanks also to all the presenters and delegates who took part and shared views in our panel session.

“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.”
