Posted by on Nov 23rd, 2016 in Latest News | Comments Off on Transforming health and social care in Kent and Medway

Today (23 November 2016) NHS, social care and public health leaders in Kent and Medway launch our draft Health and Social Care Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) that sets out how we think services need to change over the next five years to achieve the right care for people for decades to come.

A work in progress, it focuses on improving:

  • prevention of ill-health
  • local care – giving better access to care and support in people’s own communities
  • hospital care
  • mental health care.

To find out more, please read the attached summary document, Transforming health and social care in Kent and Medway, which sets out more about what we want to achieve and our areas of focus. The full draft plan, a set of frequently asked questions, and a glossary are on all the CCG websites. Over coming months, the websites will also have information about engagement events and other ways that people can make their voices heard.
