Exmouth asked for views over NHS changes

A public consultation is being held in Exmouth next month over changes proposed by the NHS

Exmouth is to host a public consultation to gauge public views on the changing face of the NHS.

Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust is consulting on its plans to become an NHS Foundation Trust (FT) and will hold a public meeting at 6pm at Elizabeth Hall on Monday December 12.

The trust is holding a series of public meetings to consult on its plans and also to hear what people value about their local NHS services - and where they think efforts should go to improve them further.

Jac Kelly, chief executive of the trust, said he hoped the consultation would be well-attended.

He said: “We feel that, as an NHS Foundation Trust, we can play a much greater role in supporting the health needs of our local communities.

“This meeting in Exmouth is open to all and is your chance to let us know what you think about our plans so I would urge as many of you as possible to come along.”
