An audit of telecare services, Good Governance Institute

Looking at recommendations aimed at Government and local authority officials about how telecare services and user outcomes can be improved.

It is targeted at policy-makers, local authority councillors with an interest in adult social care, local authority directors of adult social services, and health and wellbeing board members. Its purpose is to encourage decision-makers to understand the current provision of telecare services in England and how services can be improved for the future.

The report and the analysis it contains was compiled following a number of requests under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 sent to all upper-tier and unitary local authorities in England. The audit was responded to by 121 out of 152 councils (80%) in England. All analyses in this paper are based on the responses of those local authorities that responded in full to the FOI requests.
