There have been reports today that the future of Honiton and Seaton Hospitals is under question.
The CCG wishes to make clear that there are no plans to close Honiton and Seaton hospitals.
In March 2017, the Governing Body of NHS Northern, Eastern and Western Devon Clinical Commissioning voted to implement a number of changes following a 13 week public consultation. This included the decision to close inpatient beds at both Honiton and Seaton hospitals.
Beds were closed in both hospitals in August 2017 as more care was introduced to look after people at home. Both hospitals are still open, thriving buildings providing more than 50 day services and clinics combined.
