Event Details


Hosted by Matt Bowsher Director of Quality and Commissioning for Dudley Council.

A panel of expert speakers presenting solutions and answering questions, including Shirley Ayres, Marie Spittle from Dudley Council Telecare Service, Richard Haynes founder of a social enterprise, The Community Gateway CIC, and Professor Peter Gore ADL Smart Care.

We will explore some of the barriers to better mainstream the uptake and ongoing use of Telecare, and ways in which the ideas and solutions discussed link directly with Make it Real, Think Local, Act Personal and QIPP.



The event will be chaired by Pete Jackson, the Adult Social Care Lead for Improvement Efficiency West Midlands and former policy advisor, and Improvement Manager for the Improvement and Development Agency (IDeA).

Dudley Council Telecare Manager Marie Spittle will be on the panel to discuss and answer questions on ways Dudley Council has communicated and promoted its Telecare service and increased uptake and its ongoing usage.


Shirley Ayres will also be on the panel of experts. Shirley works tirelessly to promote collaboration and partnerships across the public, private and not for profit sectors. As a qualified social worker and marketer she has extensive experience of helping organisations to understand the value of technology and digital engagement. She has written extensively about the importance of of social technology to support community wellbeing. Shirley is the author of "Can online innovations enhance social care?" published by the Nominet Trust and the Click Guide to Digital Technology for Adult Social Care.

Shirley is also the co-presenter and producer of the Disruptive Social Care podcast a weekly discussion programme which shares innovative ideas to transform care services and help people and communities connect. Shirley has conducted interviews with thought leaders from the worlds of care, health, politics, entrepreneurship and technology innovation about the challenges of social change.


Professor Peter Gore for ADL Smartcare will present on some of the barriers to better adoption of equipment and identification of need and how its 'class leading' tool can help in better, safer and wider adoption of Telecare and Telehealth.
