The Parish of East Down

As you will be aware, Devon’s Acute Services Review (ASR) 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 website of NHS NEW Devon 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 (ASR), 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.
