Have your say on a new Medway Model for joined up NHS health and social care services.

The Medway Clinical Commissioning Group is looking for your views on the future of health and care in Medway and they now have new listening event dates across Medway.

The Medway Model is a new way of joining up local health and care services so that, where appropriate and possible, they can be delivered closer to people’s homes. We know that most people, when given a choice, want to stay out of hospital and receive care either in their own home or in their neighbourhood.

When someone is ill, there are so many more people involved in their care than just the patient and their GP, so we are bringing services together in six locations across Medway. This will enable health and care staff to work more closely together and develop services that focus on patients.

The approach also recognises that patients have better outcomes if they are involved in decisions around the care they receive and are supported to make healthy choices about their lifestyle. The Medway Model is designed to ensure patients and their families have a strong voice in decisions about their health, care and wellbeing.
