Current opportunities to get involved

Coronavirus (COVID-19): Events/face-to-face engagement suspended

NHS West Kent Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has suspended all events/face-to-face engagement due to the coronavirus pandemic. Thank you for your understanding at this time.

Engagement events and opportunities

NOTE: Due to the formation of a single clinical commissioning group for Kent and Medway, as of 1 April 2020, NHS West Kent Clinical Commissioning Group’s website, and so this page, will no longer be updated

To find out about the new clinical commissioning group and patient and public engagement activities you may wish to get involved in, please visit the new NHS Kent and Medway CCG website.

NHS West Kent Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has events and opportunities throughout the year which enable local people to become involved shaping their local services.

These can include topic-specific focus groups, workshops and online surveys alongside stands and activities at events, increasingly in partnership with neighbouring CCGs, and partners across Kent and Medway.

The CCG’s Governing Body and Primary Care Commissioning Committee meetings are open to the public, as is the CCG’s Annual General Meeting.

The CCG is committed to ensuring that any public involvement event it holds, caters for the needs of all local people and therefore provides:

  • Hearing loops within event venues
  • Wheelchair accessible venues
  • large print / documents available in other formats on request. 


Join the West Kent Health Network

The Health Network is a virtual group of patients, public and voluntary groups who are interested in getting more involved in how services are planned and designed.
