This programme is now available to view on localgov.tv the online television channel for public service modernisation. It describes how advances in mobile point of care technology are helping to improve the quality of services and transforming staff productivity by more than 25 per cent. The programme looks at how the Mobile Clinical Assistant is enabling care workers to access vital client data in real-time at any location, including the client’s home.

Care workers using the device can now spend more time with clients or see more clients in a day because of the reduced need to visit the office for administration.

GBTV is a dedicated web-cast television channel for governors of public bodies, council members and senior executives across all public sector organisations and is available free to an unlimited audience at anytime, at any location via the internet.
