Further Improving Telecare Training and Provision

As part of their Telecare Strategy, Surrey County Council has trained four Telecare Expert Practitioners across the county – a Practice Lead within Personal Care and Support from each area. They have all received bespoke Telecare training.

These four Practice Leads will be responsible for delivering local training sessions to the teams within their areas, and working with practitioners to improve Telecare uptake. They have each been provided with a Telecare demonstrator kit, which will be available to share with staff and people who may need Telecare.

A Telecare demonstrator site facility at Cobham Community Centre is now available to all practitioners as a means of extending their own Telecare awareness and knowledge, and will also be available to members of the public who wish to explore Telecare options.

This training forms part of the wider picture of Telecare training that will be rolled out across the county.
