Adult Community Health Services Re-Procurement: Report From 2018 Patient and Public Engagement pdf icon PDF 572 KB

NHS Medway Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) wants to transform the way adult community health services are delivered across Medway, so that they are less fragmented, more joined up and with more services within local communities, closer to people’s homes.


There are seven key changes to services for local people which have been developed as a result of initial engagement with patients, clinicians, staff and local residents. In August 2018 the CCG consulted with the Committee on these seven key changes.


Following this, the CCG then undertook patient and public engagement during September and October. The report outlines the approaches taken during this engagement, the feedback received from local people and describes what the CCG will do to respond to the findings.
