To complement the existing TSA events programme, TSA are delivering a series of events aimed at our Full, Associate and RPI members.
TSA Surgeries provide you with an opportunity to meet with the TSA team and also with other members in your area giving members the perfect opportunity to come together and learn best practice, troubleshoot and share knowledge with each other.
Unfortunately TSA Supply members are not permitted to attend TSA Surgeries. However, supply members can benefit from the feedback the TSA team receives on the day from service providers about particular products and services and this is relayed back as an invaluable feedback loop to further improve products and services and the fit between both parties.
TSA Surgery events will take place right across the country. Due to capacity at the Surgeries they may be limited to one representative from each member organisation.
TSA Surgeries aim to be fully interactive, and encourage participation from all attendees. Surgeries are aimed at individuals that lead or manage services, for example, Service Managers, Call Centre Managers and Operational Managers.
Following some short updates from TSA, that will include the following areas:
We see these events as a great learning and networking opportunity for all attendees.
"I thoroughly enjoyed it...and stops you feeling so isolated knowing others are experiencing the same challenges. The updates from TSA were extremely informative - the training information - which I hope to take forward in the coming months along with the big topic of the year, analogue to digital. I also think that a large group of like-minded people with a passion for the industry can be inspiring and from my perspective it can relieve you from every day office tasks to re-engage what’s happening in other areas. I came out feeling refocused and fully intend..to attend every meeting - a big thank you to you all at TSA."
- Gwen Robinson, Assistive Technology Lead, Blackpool Council.
"This was my and NRS’ first TSA surgery in the northeast. It was great for us to link with local providers and authorities in the north and find out how they are running their TEC services. Was brilliant to hear some feedback re their challenges they are facing re the digital switch over. Working alongside the TSA is a must in my opinion to ensure we are delivering the best services possible to the standards we are credited to." - Danny Shepherd, Assistive Technology Manager, NRS Healthcare.
