£130m for telecare and home help

Categories: Latest News.

I’ve been taken to task for ignoring a couple of weeks ago this item from e-health-insider: £130m for telecare and home help (read the comment too). But, given the experience of the Preventative Technology Grant, does anyone other than the e-health-insider headline writer believe that any of this funding will be spent on telecare? There was no reference to telecare in the Queen’s speech itself, or in the No10 gloss on the Personal Care At Home Bill. Will be interested to hear what Telecare Aware readers think, Steve.

    • Interpersonal;
    • Sociological;
    • Empirical;
    • Political.

    Our links pages cover each care (knowledge) domain e.g. INTERPERSONAL:
