Social Care Tech: Can Innovation Save the Crisis?
Venue: Hambro Perks, 8 Greencoat Place, London, SW1P 1PL
Sorry, this event has now ended.
Join One HealthTech, NHS Digital and a panel of experts to discuss how innovation is supporting social care.
While NHS budgets have been somewhat protected, social services for home help and other care have fallen by 11% in the last 5 years. With an increased pressure on citizens to self-manage and take more responsibility for their own welfare, can service users, carers and professionals be expected to navigate their way through the huge rise in new health and social care technologies? Is there a degree of harmony between the innovations in assisted technology and the prospect of strength-based social work? The session will also ask what role Sustainability & Transformation Plans play in all this.
