We introduced our telecare re-evaluation service in 2013 and have demonstrated to an independent auditor that it has met the requirements of the Code of Practice over the last two years. The award of “Platinum status” is public recognition that all of our services fully meet UK and European Standards and a testament to the commitment of the company and its staff to providing our customers with a high quality service designed around their individual needs.”
