Tunstall press release highlights its contribution to Cheshire’s success.
Having secured £1m Government funding from the Preventative Technology Grant (PTG), Cheshire Social Services has successfully mainstreamed telecare across the county, by January 2008 providing tailored telecare packages to a total of 600 service users with long-term care needs.
If that’s so, that’s a cost of £1,666 per client, when the PTG funding assumed a funding or £500 per person supplied. So what was the additional £1,166 overhead? In fact, on the basis of £999,000 PTG funding over the two years, Cheshire was expected to contribute 1,998 new telecare users to the national target.
So who, other than Tunstall’s accountants and sales department, sees this as a success? Read the press release here.
