Virgin Care provide Adult Community Services in Dartford, Gravesham, Swanley and Swale areas. We provide a wide range of services including community nursing and occupational therapy among others. We began providing these services in September 2016.
A wide variety of NHS services sit within the term ‘community services’. In very simple terms it means all the services that aren’t delivered in a large hospital (secondary care) or classed as primary care (like GP practices and urgent care centres).
We provide similar services across the country, where we’ve invested significantly in bringing services together and improving the experience for the people who use our services. In North Kent we’re bringing services from two providers together, improving patients’ experiences of the services, investing in technology which will make the services more efficient and reducing the use of agency staffing.
The aim of our community services and teams is to work together with other organisations to provide you with the care you need close to, or in your home as a seamless experience, regardless of who in the NHS is actually looking after you.
Our staff have the skills and experience to make a real difference, so we empower them to challenge ‘the way things have always been done’. We’re also providing them with the latest tools, such as mobile working solutions, to give them more time with people using our services and make our service as safe as possible.
