The workshop will describe the development of the good practice guide which will bring consistency in emergency responses to Community Alarm/Telecare calls.

This has been a unique collaboration that required the Ambulance and Telecare providers to work together as a result of the impact of a Fatal Accident Enquiry.

Development of the good practice guide has resulted in closer working relationships with services and a much richer understanding of one another's perspective.

The output included sharing of relevant up to date information. The draft GPG went through a process of consultation - which ended in June 2013, and included a workshop at the Scottish Telehealth and Telecare Learning Network event.
