Good to see Hannah Farrah talk about importance of care in the community. Then why is London only training 3 district nurses this year?

I agree technology will increasingly shape care in the future enabling patients to look after themselves in their own communities, especially towards the end of their lives. SEMPA has been established to meet such a need through the use, for example of videos of disabled employers sharing their experiences of managing their own lives using a PA as their employee.

There are currently 200,000 such employers in the UK and they remain largely unnoticed as a resource.
