Tackling the Winter Care Crisis - Funding and Technology Solutions for Local Authorities

About this event

Please note new date: Tuesday 23rd November 2021 - 2:00 pm

Local authorities are using innovative technology and seasonal funding to reduce pressure on the NHS this winter - Find out how in this virtual panel discussion.

Local authorities face a difficult winter trying to support residents experiencing rocketing fuel bills, increased food prices and reduced benefits. As a result, experts predict an increase in fuel poverty and ill health, putting added pressure on an already Covid-stretched NHS. With what is likely to be an incredibly challenging winter, local authorities are keen to find new ways of identifying homes and residents who are most at risk of falling into fuel poverty and providing them with the support they so desperately need.

In this virtual panel discussion, local authority representatives will discuss how they use the NHS Better Care Fund (previously known as Winter Pressures) to identify those most at risk and keep their residents healthy and at home. The panel will also discuss the technological solutions they are using to discreetly monitor their residents and the home's environmental conditions to indicate ill health or harmful living conditions quickly.
