Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust joins social impact initiative

Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust (KMPT) has partnered with the Purpose Health Coalition, joining their new framework which will measure social impact across the region.

In partnership with former Public Health Minister Rt Hon Anne Milton and former Education Secretary Rt Hon Justine Greening, KMPT will create an Impact Report to measure its social impact using the existing Purpose Goals. The Purpose Goals, established last year, focus on key aspects of social development from childhood through to adulthood, alongside other obstacles to physical and mental health which can prevent people from achieving their full potential later in life.

As part of the collaboration, KMPT will track its clinical activities against the Purpose Goals, highlighting areas of best practice and identifying new ways it can improve services and foster better outcomes for the wider community.

Helen Greatorex, Chief Executive, at KMPT, said: “With more than 3,600 staff serving over 1.8 million people, KMPT is perfectly placed to help make a significant contribution to communities across Kent and Medway. Be that helping to improve the quality of peoples’ lives, supporting our local economy, nurturing talent, embracing diversity or reducing our environmental impact – we have valuable insights, relationships and networks that can help make a positive difference.

With the challenges many people are facing, there has never been a more important time for us to partner with the Purpose Coalition and show our commitment to be an anchor institution driving positive change.”
