Jobs expectation in Bodmin after BT’s Cornwall telehealth win

Following the April 2013 decision by Cornwall Council to award the outsourcing contract to BT (including the outsourcing of telehealth and telecare) there is expectation that 300 new telehealth jobs will be created in Bodmin, according to the Cornish Guardian. The council is reported to be planning a new office block at the Beacon Technology Park which it is thought will be the site for the facility.

BT’s contract is for 10 years and was awarded after a stop-start process during which the proposal to outsource was suspended at one point in October last year.
