Mick’s House: Telecare publicity with a difference (UK)

[grow_thumb image=”https://telecareaware.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/mick-burkhill.png” thumb_width=”150″ /]Since 2007 when Mick Burkhill (a former Regional Sales Manager who had heart attacks at the age of 52) had his first telecare equipment he has turned into something of an expert and he now gives feedback on new equipment to his local council and its supplier. Now he is aiming to share that expertise through a new website and to help raise public awareness. Mick is starting to blog from the site and would appreciate hearing from TTA readers who may want to suggest topics that he could write about from a telecare user’s point of view – use the contact form on the site: Mick’s House: One man’s insight into Telecare. Very much in the background Mick’s site is supported by Tynetec Ltd but they have made it clear that the content is all down to Mick and any community that he can develop.

    I think this is a fantastic innovation, clear and to the point. I wish Mick every success and will certainly be pointing staff to it. Especially for Micks heartfelt interview that gets the whole point of Telecare across that can be, sadly, completely missed and often proactively overshadowed by cost saving targets.

  2. Thanks for your positive response Helen ,it keeps me fired up.
    As i incur zero direct costs personally lets hope costs and cuts don’t affect my support network.

    Until then any ideas or questions regarding Telecare please post them via the mickshouse.info website and just maybe a very under publicised yet essential service that in my case, Tameside CRS is all set up awaiting to enable more Clients.

    Nothing To Lose And Everything To Gain.
