Social Care Dragon’s Den by the IHSCM

Meet the social care suppliers and users of technology for care homes & home care. IHSCM organised the Dragon’s Den where the dragons don’t breathe fire and don’t have a stack of cash next to them. But they give valuable feedback and pieces of advice for the entrepreneurs!
