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.

Another Successful TECS MarketPlace!

Our Cambridgeshire TECS MarketPlace, held at the Burgess Hall, St. Ives on the 13th March, proved to be easily as popular 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.
