Proposal to extend the existing Telecare contract with the current provider to 31 August 2023

The existing contract with Welbeing, who provides telecare services in behalf of East Sussex County Council allows for a two-year extension up to 31 August 2023.

We are seeking approval to utilise the full duration of this extension to allow time for a full review of the telecare offer in East Sussex and explore the opportunities that have arisen from recent technological advances.
