Community Partnerships

West Kent CCG is very grateful for the support and enthusiasm of members, volunteers and staff from local voluntary and community sector organisations, who help us to share information and involve a wide range of people living in west Kent. Working closely together allows CCG staff and our engagement team to regularly join community groups. Joining groups helps us to collect views and support community forums to contribute to plans or discussions on specific issues or interests. With the CCG and community partners working together we can help build healthier communities.

We also have regular updates from representatives of voluntary and community sector organisations at NHS project groups and committees where they can influence plans and share their insights. Representation allows broader views to be taken into consideration when planning and co-designing health and social care services.   

New community partners are always welcome to contact us and if for any reason a representative can’t attend a meeting then members, volunteers and staff from local voluntary and community sector organisations, and organisations can join our Health Network to receive regular updates, collaborate virtually and contribute views. To catch up with our team when they are out and about or invite them to your group or event e-mail comms.kentandmedway@nhs.net where we Tweet and re-Tweet news, views and photos from our engagement activities and community partners across Kent and Medway
