Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust
Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust provide mental health and social care services for Kent in partnership with Kent County Council. In Medway, we work closely with the local unitary authority to provide joined-up health and social care services.
Our services are predominantly provided around key urban centres including Maidstone, Medway and Canterbury, but we provide a range of services in community locations, reflecting the urban and rural mix of the area. We have also introduced telemedicine to enhance accessibility.
It is important we work closely with our health and social care partners across the county to ensure we are providing services fit for future generations. This is an exciting opportunity to be part of changing the way we deliver prevention and care to our population.
We currently work very closely with Canterbury Christ Church University and offer a variety of student placements across the trust. We have already started building relationships with the new Kent and Medway Medical School which is based in Canterbury. It’s exciting times for medical education across the county.
As one of the larger mental health trusts in the country, we cover an area of 1,450 sq miles and serve 1.7 million people across Kent and Medway. Our annual revenue is £178 million and we employ approximately 3,318 staff who are located in 66 buildings on 33 sites.
Last year we cared for nearly 50,000 people, involving more than half a million contacts.
We are delighted to be working closely with the new Kent and Medway Medical School (KMMS) which will accept students from 2020.
KMMS is a collaboration between Canterbury Christ Church University and the University of Kent. They will also be working in partnership with the highly regarded and well established Brighton and Sussex Medical School for support and quality assurance purposes. We look forward to helping even more students find their career path in mental health.
We provide a number of different mental health services to people aged over 14 living in Kent and Medway. Our services are more specialised than services provided by your GP. Most of our mental health services provided through:
- Community based teams
