The West Midlands developed AskTARA website is to be launched nationally on 1 October 2011 (NHS Local announcement). The site will initially target telecare and telehealth products, but will expand to take in a range of services such as personal support assistants, carers and residential and domiciliary care. AskTARA.
CORRECTION 13:10 The original item stated that AskTARA was based on the Disabled Living Association’s (DLF) AskSARA database/site. It was an incorrect assumption on the part of editor Steve (based on the similarity of the name and content) that AskTARA was a licenced offshoot of AskSARA. I understand from the DLF that this is not the case and, in fact, it’s functionality is much less. Pity. They might have saved themselves some of that development cost.Compare AskTARA also with the DLF’s Living Made Easy site (scroll down for the Telecare and Alarms section).
