Kent and Medway CCG
Kent and Medway CCG is the NHS organisation that plans and buys healthcare services.
The CCG has been formed by bringing together eight smaller CCGs across Kent and Medway. Creating one CCG is a vital step towards Kent and Medway becoming an integrated care system, with health and care organisations working together much more closely than in the past
An integrated care system is when all organisations involved in health and social care work together in different, more joined-up ways.
The focus will be on providing care in a way that benefits patients, not what is easiest for organisations.
From family doctors, to mental health staff, community teams and major hospitals, we’re going to be pooling our resources, skills and expertise to make care and support better for our residents.
