Enhanced AT Service: Going back to at least 2014, the Better Care Fund and Wokingham Borough Council have been looking at options to enhance the Technology Enabled Care (TEC) service in Wokingham. In 2016 WBC in conjunction with the Berkshire West 10 commissioned PA consulting to look at TEC across the county. Both WBC and Optalis were involved in the workshops and providing information. The report highlighted a need for more investment across the region and both PA and NRS put forward proposals.
The Occupational Therapy Managers of both WBC and Optalis felt that it would be more productive to enhance the existing service in house, rather than take part in a service across the region. A paper was requested and presented at the Wokingham Management Partnership Board (WMPB).
WMPB has agreed to fund the service. WBC would like Optalis to provide this service as an addition to the existing TEC provision.

Post Description: We are looking for a dynamic, enthusiastic practitioner with experience and knowledge of health and social care and excellent communications skills, to be a TEC practitioner within our innovative and forward thinking community based team in Wokingham. We are seeking a person who is keen to take on a challenging but exciting opportunity; a worker who is able to seek out appropriate solutions to problems, often in creative and innovative ways, to achieve the positive outcomes for customers and carers across health and social care.
