In Lancashire, following a period of consultation with Tunstall, there has been a change where staff no longer need to specify the equipment.
Instead, we ask them to give a good ‘story’ of the person, their needs and desired outcomes and Progress Housing will then assess the most suitable equipment.
Therefore, during our talk we could explain how there is no need to be an expert in every piece of equipment, although we did want to share some of what is available. I would then hand over to Steven who would explain the referral and installation process, and how the groups could identify people who would benefit from a Telecare referral.
Forty minutes later, we were amazed at how quickly the session had gone and how enjoyable the fast-paced engagement session had been.
At its Meet & Match events, BIOPRO Baden-Württemberg relies on this efficient way to initiate new business contacts in the fields of bio-economy and biotechnology, as well as pharmaceutical industry and medical technology.
