The Medway, North and West Kent Delivery Board (MNWK DB) met for the first time on 14 June 2017. The Board has been set up to focus on the development, implementation and delivery of the sustainability and transformation plan across this geography. It will look particularly at the development of an acute services strategy for Medway, North and West Kent and how this links with local care plans. The board will support delivery of the Kent and Medway plans for health and social care, addressing the triple aims of NHS England’s Five Year Forward View : improved health and wellbeing for the community; better quality health and care services for patients; on a financially sustainable basis.

The MNWK Delivery Board sits within the Kent and Medway Sustainability & Transformation Partnership (STP). The MNWK Delivery Board is jointly chaired by Lesley Dwyer, Chief Executive of the Medway NHS Foundation Trust (MFT) and Patricia Davies, Chief Officer at Dartford, Gravesham and Swanley CCG and Swale CCG.
