Patient and Public Advisory Group

The Patient and Public Advisory Group (PPAG) is part of the formal governance structure for the Sustainability and Transformation Partnership in Kent and Medway.

The group is just one strand of the engagement and involvement work to ensure the voice of patients and the public are heard in the development of more detailed plans for health and social care in our area.

The Patient and Public Advisory Group meet once a month and provide the partnership with their feedback on the programme itself, as well as offering advice and suggestions on the communication and engagement supporting the Sustainability and Transformation Plan.  They are only one means by which the partnership is involving people. Each member is part of one or more of our 10 workstreams.

We are currently looking for new members to join the group and the chair, Steve Inett, is particularly keen to have these filled from diverse and seldom-heard communities.  If you are interested in finding out more about the role and what it entails, please email in the first instance.
