Peter Macleod appointed as Chair of the Technology Enabled Care Programme Board

Peter Macleod, Chief Executive of the Care Inspectorate, has been appointed as the Chair of the Technology Enabled Care (TEC) Programme Board from August 2019. 

The TEC Programme, launched in late 2014, is a Scotland-wide programme designed to significantly increase citizen choice and control in health, well-being and care services. The programme was set up to respond to the need for service transformation in the context of rising demand for health and social care. By providing central funding to a dedicated programme, the aim is to drive deployment at a local level alongside national infrastructure and support work, and to place Scotland at the forefront of innovative approaches to technology-enabled care.

Peter Macleod, Chief Executive and Paul Edie, Chair said: “we welcome this opportunity to endorse the potential for transforming health, care and support through the use of existing and emerging technology. The Care Inspectorate has a key role to play in influencing and promoting its use.”

The TEC Programme is supporting the wider ambitions in Scotland’s Digital Health and Care Strategy, in particular service transformation.
