During the summer and autumn we held a series of listening events about future plans for health and social care in Kent and Medway. We asked for your feedback to help shape the development and delivery of these plans and the results have been published in a report out today. The report from independent analysts DJS Research shows the results and key themes emerging from the events and they will continue to work with us and analyse results from future events, too.

Also during the summer, we commissioned Engage Kent to talk to seldom-heard groups about plans for east Kent. This report highlights the headlines heard during the outreach engagement activities. Their report is also now available.

These reports will be considered widely by all our partners and workstreams and the findings are influencing our plans. We are currently preparing another report on how we are responding to these and earlier research findings and this will also be published.
