During the past 6 months, work has continued on expanding the iCUHTec network in order to offer more regional groups and meetings.

A Liverpool City Region group has been formed and had its inaugural meeting in February.

Following the success of the Telecare Day in Carlisle last year, plans are well underway to include an iCUHTec event in an Innovation Day at the University of Cumbria in Lancaster in May.

The North East region of the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services is working with iCUHTec to develop a programme of meetings to support the delivery of Assistive Technology and Technology Enabled Care and Support Services.

The London Group of Advanced Assistive Technology Practitioners is supporting iCUHTec in providing regular meetings for telecare leads in London Boroughs in addition to the existing meeting programme for an advanced group.
