Original text:

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 we do and how we deliver services.


We continue to actively engage all stakeholders, undertake ongoing service evaluation, research and focus group work to tailor all services to local needs. We 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 we have proposed to deliver services to children and young people, and which will best achieve the desired outcomes for the 0-19 population.
