£12m to expand on hi-tech home healthcare
More older people and those living with long-term illnesses will be given devices so their health can be monitored while they are at home thanks to funding of£12m.
'Telehealth' monitoring technology enables people to test their own conditions, such as blood pressure or blood glucose levels, at home. Healthcare professionals check the results and local GP surgeries can also monitor the patient remotely.
The extra funding for teams in Kent, Newham and Cornwall to look out how these services can be implemented was announced by health secretary Patricia Hewitt.
Over the next two years the government aims to install more than 7,000 health monitoring technology in people's homes.
