Our Vision

Supporting member practices in providing high quality care across the local community

Who We Are

West Kent Health is a GP lead Federation of the 55 practices in West Kent. We have evolved from the merger of 2 collaborative organisations, South West Kent Health and Mid Kent GP Alliance, which were set up by a group of GPs and Practice managers to aid collaboration between practices and support the interests of General Practice within the NHS. We represent all of the practices in the West Kent CCG area.

We are a company limited by shares with our member practices being the shareholders with the ethos of a ‘not for profit’ organisation.

Statement of Purpose

We exist to provide support for practices to maintain their financial and organisational stability with a thriving and resilient workforce. To provide leadership which facilitates General Practice remaining at the heart of Local Care as it evolves, thereby improving the experience and outcomes for the people of West Kent as they seek to remain healthy.

Our Values are to:

  • keep general practice as our priority.
  • have an open and transparent ethos.
  • have a democratic approach.
  • be GP owned & led.
  • develop people, promoting education and training for all staff.

Our Beliefs are that we can:

  • strengthen general practice by working closer together.
  • enable all to benefit from building trusted relationships with our GP neighbours.
  • offer access to a wholly inclusive general practice for our collective patients.
  • create safer, stronger and more innovative primary care than ever before.

Our Aims are to:

  • strengthen primary care by partnering together.
  • build a sustainable collaborative organisation of member practices.
  • aid member practices in delivering high quality consistent care.
  • support our patients & the health care system by understanding need & improving care.
  • lead the drive towards integrated community health services, taking a proactive approach to the ‘Five Year Forward View’.
