Better Care Fund plan

Improving health and care services in Kent

Delivery of the Better Care Fund plan means people living in Kent can expect:

  • better access to health and social care services through GP practices
  • increased independence
  • more control over care and the ability to self-manage
  • improved care at home
  • fewer acute admissions and long term care placements
  • faster community response, particularly for people with dementia
  • to live safely at home, supported by care plans
  • to die in your own home, supported by anticipatory care plans 
  • to be in  control of what information is shared electronically about them
  • better use of local information and evidence to commission health and care services.

The Better Care Fund plan is part of the Kent Integration Pioneer programme.
