Kent County CouncilKent County Council is canvassing residents’ thoughts on a proposed new model for future public health improvement services that aims to assist them to live longer lives.

Health Visiting and School Public Health Service Consultation

Kent County CouncilKent County Council (KCC) is seeking views on the proposed service delivery models for Health Visiting and the School Public Health Service.  Consultation responses will be used to improve services and ensure that they are designed around the needs of Kent residents. Residents are at the heart of what KCC do and how we deliver services.

KCC continues to actively engage all stakeholders, undertake ongoing service evaluation, research and focus group work to tailor all services to local needs. They value the opinion of all current, past and potential services users and want to create the opportunity for the wider public to shape service delivery in the future.

Kent County Council would like to hear your views on future models they have proposed to deliver services to children and young people, and which will best achieve the desired outcomes for the 0-19 population.
