Community Hospitals

Today I attended South Devon and Torbay Clinical Commissioning Group's Governing Body meeting which approved proposals to change NHS resources from bed-based hospital care to health and wellbeing teams that support people within their local communities, as close to their homes as possible.

NHS England, which leads the National Health Service, will consider the proposals next month. If it approves them, consultation will run for 12 weeks, giving people across South Devon and Torbay an opportunity to comment and the CCG will host a series of public meetings across South Devon and Torbay, where people will be able to hear the proposals in detail and feedback their views.
