Find out more about Kent and Medway sustainability and transformation partnership (STP) including details of its population size, constituent organisations and priorities.




  • Create services which are able to meet the physical and mental health needs of our changing population, as people age, and more people move into Kent and Medway
  • Reduce health inequalities (unfair differences in health and life expectancy that people experience in some parts of the county) and death rates from preventable conditions
  • Increase services to prevent and manage long-term health conditions such as diabetes and lung disease, with targeted interventions to reduce obesity and smoking
  • Make sure people are cared for in the right place and get high quality, accessible social care across Kent and Medway, implementing an integrated model of local care for frail older people and people with complex needs
  • Improve system resilience and performance to make sure local health and social care services meet nationally recognised clinical quality standards
  • Attract, retain and grow a talented workforce and use them to the best effect
  • Work within the budget we have for health and social care across Kent and Medway by using our resources more effectively and delivering substantial productivity savings
