NHS   Self–care using medicines in the home without needing a prescription
NHS Clinical Commissioners (NHSCC) and NHS England have developed a proposal to improve patient care by no longer routinely prescribing medicines which are widely available in pharmacies and shops for minor illnesses and ailments, and to tighten prescription guidance on 18 medicines which are either clinically ineffective; unsafe; are not cost effective; or where the NHS can offer a clinically-proven alternatives for patients. Any savings from implementing the proposals will be reinvested in improving patient care.
The CCGs in east Kent would like to know what the patients, public and staff  think about these proposals and their experience of using medicines to treat minor ailments and illnesses at home, before responding to the national  consultation.

Have your say on plans for improving urgent and emergency care services in Medway

To make urgent care services simpler for patients, Medway Clinical Commissioning Group is proposing to develop an Urgent Care Centre near the A&E Department at Medway Maritime Hospital.

Services currently provided at the Walk-in Centre at Balmoral Gardens Healthy Living Centre would be relocated and provided within the Urgent Care Centre, which is less than a mile from the current location.

The move would:

  • Simplify the urgent care system for most people
  • Ensure speedy access to the most appropriate specialists
  • Improve patient experience and health outcomes
  • Make the best use of skilled staff

 We want your views.

We are holding two events, so that you can find out more about the proposals and about wider plans for improving urgent and emergency care.  The events are taking place on:

  • Wednesday 30 August, 9am-5pm, Oasis Academy (Isle of Sheppey West Campus), Marine Parade, Sheerness, ME12 2BE.

This is a joint event with Swale Clinical Commissioning Group.

  • Tuesday 5 September, 6.30-8.30pm, St George Hotel, 8 New Road, Chatham, ME4 6BB.

Closing Date: 22nd September
