Watch our 2020/21 annual meeting

It’s been our most challenging year in history and we looked back at a year in the life of NHS community services at our live annual meeting on Thursday, 23 September. If you missed it, you can watch speakers and films from the meeting below. 

We heard from John Goulston, Chair at Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust, as well as our Chief Executive Paul Bentley and Lead Governor David Price. They talked about what it takes to deliver high-quality services and reflections from some of our teams.

We also gave an overview of our finances for 2020/21 and there was a question and answer session, before our choir ended the meeting with a special performance.

Changes to our constitution

Our Council of Governors has made some changes to our constitution, which we would like members’ views on.

The changes are:

  • Make up of appointed governors: This no longer includes Kent CAN, Medway Council or Kent Fire and Rescue Service. However, Kent Dementia Action Alliance and Carers FIRST have now joined the appointed governors list.
  • Length of service for appointed governors: The maximum term of office for appointed governors has been removed.
  • Length of service for governors: The term of office for elected governors has been extended to a maximum of three terms (nine years), this removes the needs to stand down after the second term.
  • Constituency name: The constituency of Shepway has been renamed to Folkestone and Hythe.

If you would like to make any comments about these changes, please email by 30 September 2021 or write to:
