Lincolnshire: £2m funding for telecare and telehealth program (UK)

NHS Lincolnshire and Lincolnshire County Council have teamed up to “create a strategy designed to keep mainly elderly people living healthily in their homes for longer. More than £2 million has been directed from the county’s Health and Wellbeing Fund to help roll out health monitoring equipment and security systems to ensure this group of people are kept safe.” Nice little piece from the local Lincolnshire paper, but what I [Ed. Steve] like most is that the reporter had the sensitivity to put the word ‘vulnerable’ in quotes at the start of the item, since no one in the industry ever defines what they mean by it. Internet technology allows patients to be monitored by doctors while at home.
