Proactive Telecare Outbound Calling phase 1 interim evaluation report from University of West of Scotland.

We are now in Phase 2 of this project and hope to have the full evaluation published by end of Nov 22.

As part of Scotland’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the use of the Near Me video system to access appointments for health and social care was rapidly scaled up at the outbreak of the pandemic.
