NHS Homerton Healthcare
Verbo is an online speech and language therapy (SaLT) toolkit that empowers education staff to support children and young people's (CYP) communication skills.
Communication skills are vital for all CYP, with wide-reaching impact on academic attainment, employment prospects and emotional well-being. A communication-rich environment and upskilled staff are essential in supporting CYP to achieve their potential. However, access to SaLT services can be a postcode lottery.
Verbo has responded to these challenges by already providing over 400 schools an online, semi-automated solution consisting of screening tools, targets, training webinars, interventions with video modelling and downloadable resources, and robust impact measures.

Essex County Council
In December 2021 Suffolk and North East Essex Integrated Care Board successfully bid for NHS funding for an accelerator programme, under the ‘Putting People at the Heart of Care’ white paper to look at how the impact of falls and subsequent admissions/need for social care could be reduced by using sensor-based falls detection technology.
Essex, focused on testing cutting edge, 4D imaging radar technology which detects, tracks and monitors activity and movement in real time across four different settings including People in the community, Sheltered Housing, Extra Care Housing and Care Homes.
It was anticipated there would be a reduction in false alarm calls in comparison to traditional wearable falls detectors. It would reduce ambulance call outs and act as an alternative device for those with cognition or memory issue or those not able to wear or press a traditional style pendant device.
