Have your say

Medway Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is holding a series of engagement events designed to help shape the future of local health and care in Medway.

The first event will focus on the provision of urgent care in Medway on:

  1. Wednesday 30 August at Oasis Academy (Isle of Sheppey West Campus), Marine Parade, Sheerness, ME12 2BE from 9am to 5pm
  2. Tuesday 5 September at St Georges Hotel, 8 New Road, Gillingham, ME4 6BB from 6.30pm to 8.30pm.

At the event, the CCG will discuss proposals to create a new urgent care centre at Medway hospital, including how you and your family can access immediate medical help in a non life-threatening situation.

You will also hear about improvements to NHS 111 and about plans to extend access to GP services, seven days a week. 

On Wednesday 13 September, the CCG will hold another event to discuss the Medway Model – a new partnership approach to delivering care and supporting wellbeing in Medway to help people stay healthy longer, make sure care is more joined up and takes place closer to home.

This event will include experts from primary care, social care, the local authority and mental health to talk about how we can work better in partnership. The meeting will give people a chance to:

  1. Understand how GP practices are planning to work together across local areas and what difference it will make to patients
  2. Hear how services are joining up in your area to get better at providing care locally
  3. Hear about innovations in technology to improve local care
  4. Tell the CCG what you want from local care in the future.

The event takes place at the Holiday Inn Rochester, Maidstone Road, ME5 9SF from 1.30pm to 4.30pm.

There will also be information about the wider plans for transforming health and social care services across Kent and Medway as part of the Kent and Medway Sustainability and Transformation Partnership.

All events are free to attend. Please contact the Communications and Engagement team at Medway CCG for more information or details on how to register your attendance. Email medway.communications@nhs.net or call 01634 335111.
