Airedale NHS Foundation Trust has been delivering a telemedicine service to prisons since 2007 and to nursing and residential care homes since 2011.


The aim of this service is to enhance existing support services to make them more efficient and to provide a responsive 24/7 video assessment line. This session will be used to: 

clarify what telemedicine is and how it can be used in clinical assessment 
share the results of the vanguard evaluation 
explain the ‘art of the possible’ in utilising technology in health care.

This event is aimed at all care home staff, community teams, CCGs, other commissioners, acute, primary and community providers.
