In response to the recommendations made by Devon STP in their acute services review, Leader of North Devon Council Des Brailey said: “North Devon Council is extremely happy and relieved that key services are recommended to be retained in North Devon.

“My council has made repeated representations to the NHS on the importance and fairness of providing good access to essential health services for our community.

“We will continue to lobby the NHS to ensure these proposals are put in place, accepting that there are challenges regarding staffing and controlling costs.

“This is good news for our community who, with us are understandably concerned about any changes to health care in North Devon.

“I am also very grateful for the work of our local MP Peter Heaton-Jones, who personally intervened and invited key individuals to North Devon.”
