As the digital transformation of the UK’s telephone network moves forward how do we ensure that TECS providers and suppliers are informed and supported to enable them to safely transfer the 1.8 million vulnerable services users and their families during the process?
For the team at UKTelehealthcare it was to partner with our members at Mole Valley Life, one of the largest public sector TECS monitoring services in the UK to hold a free event for housing, health and social care professionals and TECS providers on the 15 March 2022 in Dorking, Surrey.

Comments from one of our delegates:
“Just a quick note to say thank you for this morning’s webinar which proved to be one of the most interesting so far in the understanding of the issues surrounding the transition from analogue to digital. Steve did a great job of chairing the meeting and thanks to him also.”

“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.”
