Why are there not more public meetings?

During this current stage of pre-consultation engagement we are holding two public meetings in each of the four Clinical Commissioning Group areas, one evening and one daytime session per area. There is also an online survey and we are also carrying out face-to-face surveys and community group discussions to gather feedback.

There will be a full public consultation on the proposals in future, during which we will be running more public events in other locations across east Kent alongside further activities to collect as wide a range of views as possible.

The online survey is open until 9 December (extended from 25 November 2018). More information about the proposals is here and the survey link is here.

People can also write to us about the proposals at info.eastkent@nhs.net or by post to Freepost Plus RTEG-RHKB-EJGJ, NHS Kent and Medway Commissioning Support Unit, Kent House, 81 Station Road, Ashford, TN23 1PP. Please mark any letters clearly with East Kent Options.
