We are sad to let our readers know that Doug Miles, the founder and former Chairman of UKTelehealthcare, passed away on the 28 March 2020 a year after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
Doug had worked in the TECS sector for over twenty-five years, initially as the manager of MASCOT Telecare in Merton, South London, before founding London Telecare in 2005. Doug and co-founder John Chambers relaunched the company as UKTelehealthcare in 2013 and he continued to chair the organisation until retiring in December 2017.
Gerry Allmark (UKTHC MD) said “Doug was a true gentleman of the TECS industry and will be greatly missed by me and the UKTHC team who he continued to support after his retirement. He will also be missed by his many colleagues and friends in the telecare sector.”
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife and family at this particularly difficult time for them.
