NHS South Kent Coast Meeting Heeds to Service Quality at First

NHS South Kent Coast Meeting Heeds to Service Quality at FirstA first meeting of the governing body of NHS South Kent Coast Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) was held in public recently. It has been found that the priority at the meeting at Dover's Ark was the quality of health services received by local people.

On Wednesday, May 22, people directly got to hear about the attempts the CCG was making to ensure that patients were getting the best possible care.

Scheduled quality visits to health services were heard by the public members present at the meeting of two hours. These services are used by local residents and are funded by NHS. It is being said the visits would allow CCG clinicians to link their data reviews with the reality of front-line services.

A report was presented by Interim Chief Nurse Andrew Harrington on the service quality offered by local trusts. Issues like infection rates were covered under the same. It was told that data provided to the CCG would be checked and challenged via monthly meetings of the Quality Group.

"We welcome members of the public and representatives of local organizations at our meetings. It is important that the governing body uses these opportunities to hear from the populations it serves", avowed Dr. Darren Cocker, NHS South Kent Coast Clinical Chair.
