SPOTLIGHT: British government pledges millions for home telehealth

The government of British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has pledged 130 million pounds ($216 million) to provide home telehealth care and home adaptations to help an estimated 130,000 people live independently. The head of a charity supporting long-term care said that each pound invested in telecare would save as much as 12.60 pounds in spending on traditional healthcare and social services. But critics of the plan suspect Brown is trying to rush legislation for political gain. Article
