OUR POPULATION’S HEALTHNEEDS Whitstable faces a growing health and social care challengeassociated with its ageing population. The population of over 65s in East Kent will increase by41% between 2005 and 2020. Whitstable shows a greater proportion of over 65s incomparison with the rest of the locality. The probability of having a Long Term Condition (LTC)increases from 17%, for people under the age of 40, to60% for those aged 65 and over. People with LTC’s use disproportionately more primary andsecondary care services, 52% of all GP appointments, 65%of all outpatient appointments and 72% of all inpatient beddays. This pattern will increase over time with an ageingpopulation. WMP ranked 182 out of 287 GP practices in Kent & Medwayon the index of multiple deprivation
