Listening events and online survey
The NHS held eight public events to discuss potential options for changing hospital and local care services in east Kent. At these events, between 30 October and 20 November, doctors and other NHS leaders discussed with local people:
- the benefits change could bring
- how services outside hospitals are developing to maximise the care people get locally
- how the two options for hospital services might affect people across east Kent
- the next steps towards public consultation.
If you were not able to attend one of the events you can still provide feedback using our online survey or by writing to us. Information on the proposals and a link to the survey is on this page. The survey closes on Sunday 9 December.
