Listening event (STP)

Transforming health and social care – Help us shape health in Swale

Tuesday 17 October: 6 – 9pm
UK Paper Leisure Club, Sittingbourne

Come and meet health experts and find out how you can shape the future of health in the Swale area at our October event.

Our draft Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) for Kent and Medway sets out how we think services need to change over the next five years to achieve the right care for people for decades to come.

The STP is work in progress. It describes what we think needs to be done differently to bring about better health and wellbeing, better standards of care, and better use of staff and funds. We will only be able to decide on and implement any changes following a period of engagement and consultation with local communities in Kent and Medway.

We need to make changes because our current health and social care system isn’t set up to meet the needs of today’s population. Many more people are living longer – which is great – but they want and need a different kind of care. Find out more about this in our case for change.

Our event will take place in the at 6pm in the Lower Lounge, UK Paper Leisure Club, Avenue of Remembrance, Sittingbourne, Kent, ME10 4DE on Tuesday, 17 October 2017. Representatives from the local NHS will be on hand to introduce our ideas, discuss progress and hear your views.
