NHS Kent and Medway is the NHS organisation that plans and buys healthcare services to meet the needs of our population.
There are 1.8million people living in Kent and Medway. We have an annual budget of £3.211 billion in 2021/22 to provide the best possible care for the whole county.
As a corner stone of an integrated care system, NHS Kent and Medway will:
- allow a more coherent commissioning strategy for Kent and Medway as a whole
- enable and oversee a consistent outcomes-based approach to commissioning across the system that targets population health improvement and maximises the potential for prevention
- provide oversight and insight across a larger area, helping us identify and share best practice, deliver consistency in commissioning approach and expected outcomes, as well as helping address inequity and inequality across Kent and Medway.
