What does Digital Care mean to you?

“It has never been more important to join up and modernise public services and at a juncture where technology now provides us with endless possibilities to improve people’s lives. Over the next five to ten years, the biggest opportunities for whole system change lie around exactly the kind of areas that Servelec is involved in and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to lead a British technology company in support of such a worthwhile agenda.”
