About the East Kent Programme Board
The East Kent Programme Board has been set up by local health and care commissioners to spearhead the
drive to determine how best to provide health and care services to the population of east Kent. Its work is part
of the wider Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) for Kent and Medway.
Comprising all organisations involved in the planning, provision and delivery of health and care services in this
area, the Board is an advisory board with a clinical chair. Its membership includes the chief executives and
most senior clinicians and leaders of east Kent’s NHS and care services. The Board oversees a work
programme and advises local health and care commissioners whose role it is to plan the future pattern of
services across east Kent.
