PEOPLE from Exmouth in need of treatment or advice at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital may soon notice a change in the building's appearance when they visit.
This is because the hospital has awarded a major building contract for its reception entrance and public facilities to be refurbished.
Designed by architects Nightingale Associates, Exeter-based firm Mansell Construction will undertake the work.
Marie Noelle-Orzel, director of nursing and patient care, said: "We hope the new reception and public facilities reflect our focus to provide a friendly, professional hospital setting for high quality patient care.

Ms Noelle-Orzel said this also included baby changing facilities and feeding room and improved lighting and signage.
