Dr Tim Burke, chairman of NHS Northern, Eastern and Western Devon Clinical Commissioning Group, welcomed the announcement of additional support for the health community in most of Devon.
“Devon has already made significant inroads to address the challenges of increasing pressure on NHS services in our area.
“We recognise that only by putting organisational boundaries aside can we truly deliver the change we need and today’s announcement helps us to continue this important work.
“We welcome the commitment of the NHS England, Monitor and TDA to help us in this.
“Commissioning decisions must always be based on the needs of people living here, ensuring patients remain at the centre of our decision-making especially when there are times of financial difficulty.”
