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.

Over 60 delegates from across the UK attended the event, but if you missed it a recording is now available on the Members’ Area on our website.  If you are not a UKTelehealthcare member but are interested in joining and would like to view the event please email julia@uktelehealthcare.com for a one-off guest link.

Our next digital event will be a MarketPlace event on Tuesday 19th January at 11:00 which is a free event open to both members and non-members.  Please click here for the full programme and link.
