We are dedicated to raising the profile of telecare and telehealth services by making people know how telehealthcare products can transform their lives.

Another Successful TECS MarketPlace!

Our Cambridgeshire TECS MarketPlace, held at the Burgess Hall, St. Ives on the 13th March, proved to be easily as poular as our previous Bristol City event.

210 delegates had already pre-registered for the MarketPlace and more visitors attended on the day.

A mixture of European and UK organisations, exhibiting alongside several local Cambridgeshire groups, provided a wide selection of the latest technology enabled care equipment and services.

 

The event was commissioned by Cambridgeshire County Council in partnership with Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG to raise the awareness of technology enabled care services to professionals in social care, health, housing, occupational health and third sector and other related professional interest groups.

Councillor Anna Bailey, Chair of the Adult Social Care Committee and Vicky Main, Head of Operations Access and Short Term Services opened the MarketPlace and both were extremely enthusiastic about delivering technology enabled care services to the residents of Cambridgeshire.

Nicky Green (Pivotell)

There were presentations by Nicky Green from Pivotell, who have been working in collaboration with Age UK, Jane Crawford-White, Service Development Manager at Cambridgeshire County Council and Sarah Stacey from Just Checking which all proved hugely popular and had “full houses” at each session.

 

Please click on the links below to dowload the presentations from the MarketPlace:
