In March 2017 we held two listening events for local people to discuss plans to improve health and social care services in west Kent. The events, hosted by NHS West Kent Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), took place on Tuesday 14 March at The Gallagher Stadium in Maidstone and on Wednesday 15 March at Hadlow Manor in Tonbridge.

The listening events:

  • gave people the chance to hear about the initial Kent and Medway Health and Social Care Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP), which was published in October 2016
  • updated attendees on how this fits with local plans, including the blueprint for the future which NHS West Kent CCG developed with the public and partners three years ago
  • asked for views on what is most important when decisions are taken about services for the future: so that the criteria that will be used are robust and  work for each and every community.
