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.”

London MarketPlace at Barnet and Southgate College
Our London MarketPlace at Barnet & Southgate College, featuring the opening of the CETEC Living Lab, was held on the 5th October with over thirty exhibitors from our Supplier Members.
Some comments from the day:
“There are a lot of very good providers out there and it was heartening to speak with a few of them.
I see the present and future of health and social care very closely linked to new and existing technologies as a key enabler for change and improvement and the work that Southgate College and CETEC are doing to train and equip the health and social care people of the present and future can only be a catalyst for moving that forward.”
