Scottish telecare/telehealth plan out for consultation

Categories: Latest News.

In connection with the publication of the assessment report on Scotland’s initiative to promote telecare, the Programme Board has published for consultation until Friday 12th November 2010, a future strategy document Telehealthcare to 2012: An Action Plan for Scotland. (PDF) People (presumably in Scotland only) are invited to send views to Moira Mackenzie Telecare Programme Manager.

[Although the Board’s definition of telehealthcare as “the convergence of telecare and telehealth” is very seductive, it’s as if they had decided to call all off-road vehicles (Jeeps; Nissan Xterras; Land Rovers; Hummers; Toyota Land Cruisers, etc.) by the term ‘Land Rover’. Are they really comfortable with that? Are our readers? Ed. Steve]
