'From CWTCH to TEC - sharing our learning' Masterclass with Professor Alka Ahuja

Event Information

CWTCH – Connecting With Telehealth to Children in Hospital – offers support through the option of a virtual online clinic, in the company of family members, rather than needing to travels to appointments.

The project was begun to help young people admitted to paediatric wards in the Royal Gwent and Nevill Hall Hospitals, and was led by Professor Alka Ahuja, consultant child and adolescent psychiatrist, and visiting professor at the University of South Wales (USW) – one of the sponsors of the South Wales Argus Health and Care Awards 2020.

And since being expanded to cover the whole of Wales, the project has provided around 3,500 video consultations per week.

The success of the project led to it being used as an exemplar by the Welsh Government when the National Video Consulting Service was rolled out across Wales in response to COVID-19.

In partnership with the Welsh Government and Technology Enabled Care Cymru (TEC Cymru), it became CWTCH Cymru, and now operates under a large team of clinical, technical and research expertise.

  • The event will take place online using Zoom as a webinar.

  • All registered participants will have access to a recording for up to one week after the event.
