South Kent Coast Health and Wellbeing Board

The South Kent Coast Health and Wellbeing Board brings together key organisations to oversee the plans for improving the health and wellbeing of the people living in Deal, Dover and Shepway. It works closely with the Kent Health and Wellbeing Board, ensuring a “local” voice and helping to identify district and neighbourhood health needs, priorities and gaps in services. The public are welcome to attend meetings of the Board.
