Staffordshire will continue to contract with Telecare Technology (UK)

Following an investigation into the other business interests of Telecare Technology’s director Jamie Cole, after concerns raised by a family member of one of the users of its phone-based reminder service, a spokesman for Staffordshire County Council said “…we feel the benefits of the service to people and their carers still warrants the service’s use where applicable.”

Report from Staffordshire’s local paper The Sentinel, with a misleading headline and at least one comment from the public that indicates a contrary opinion to concern about the ‘Pick Up Artist’ business. Hmm…On revisiting the item the comments appear to have been turned off…And now the original headline has been amended too.
