The Aims of the Kent Model

  • To increase the education and improve outcomes for people with hypermobility syndromes.
  • To give access to appropriate treatment and management support to the population of people in the region who have hypermobility syndromes, and create confidence in the available support.
  • Increase knowledge, awareness and resources for local medical, health and social care professionals.
  • To build a network of professionals with an interest in working more closely with the charity in order to develop a better service.
  • To reduce the number of people who would need to be referred ‘out of area’ and thereby reduce the cost to the NHS
  • To build up an ‘HMSA Care Web’ of individuals, who would be willing to act as a local professional with sound basic understanding of the conditions.
