Please note:  Some commissioning policies approved by the previous commissioning organisations are yet to be reviewed and updated. There is an on-going programme of work in place to review and update these policies. They will then be published under the appropriate category. 

In the meantime they are still applicable to Northern, Eastern and Western Devon CCG. Former NHS Devon policies can be accessed here
