Nottingham City are rolling out the Assistive Technology Project for Adult Integrated Care which will bring the telecare system (social care) and telehealth (health services) into one place.

The telecare system provides a range of equipment designed to help people remain safe and independent. It can provide support and reassurance or help a person to manage everyday tasks.

Telehealth is a system that allows patients to give information such as their blood pressure and heart rate readings to clinicians on a regular basis from the comfort of their own home.
