Here is a letter from Keri Ross, Communications Manager, NHS Northern, Eastern and Western Devon Clinical Commissioning Group
Dear Parish Councils,
As you may be aware, Devon’s Acute Services Review was announced on 4 November 2016, when the final draft of the five-year Wider-Devon Sustainability and Transformation Plan was published. The detailed case for change is set out on the websites of NHS NEW Devon CCG and NHS South Devon and Torbay CCG.
This Plan sets out why we need to transform health and care services across Devon. It has seven main priorities, one of which is to secure clinically and financially sustainable acute hospital services across Devon. Acute services are currently provided for the people of Devon by our four major hospitals (in Barnstaple, Exeter, Plymouth and Torbay). Please find attached a stakeholder briefing on the next stage of the Devon Acute Services Review, as well as a poster with details of 12 discussion events taking place in North, East, South and West Devon, providing stakeholders and the public the opportunity to discuss decision-making criteria in any future proposals.
There are no specific proposals for service change at this stage.
If you would like a copy of these posters printed and sent to you, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your request. The posters are available as a full list, or for North, East, South and West Devon.
