Abstract

Since 2006 a series of government sponsored initiatives in the United Kingdom have sought to increase the adoption of remote care – telehealth and telecare. These aim to address the increased demand on health and social care services caused by an ageing population and rise in the number of people with long term chronic conditions. The scale of activity, including the world’s largest randomised controlled trial, have made the UK a test bed for learning about the potential of remote care, as well as the challenges in deploying it as a mainstream part of health and social care. The chapter discusses the scope of this activity and the lessons that can be learnt.
