On Thursday 27th February the Governing Body of NHS Devon Clinical Commissioning Group unanimously approved the launch of an eight-week public consultation process regarding the closure of Teignmouth hospital and the development of a new Wellbeing Centre on Brunswick Street, Teignmouth.

The consultation will begin on 10th March and will run until 5th May.

The CCG will be asking local people what they think of the proposal which will be made up of four elements:

  • Move high-use community clinics from Teignmouth Community Hospital to a new health and wellbeing centre in the centre of Teignmouth.
  • Move specialist outpatient clinics from Teignmouth Community Hospital to Dawlish Community Hospital
  • Move day case procedures from Teignmouth Community Hospital to Dawlish Community Hospital.
  • Continue with the current model of community-based intermediate care, reversing a 2015 decision to establish 12 rehabilitation beds for patients from across South Devon in Teignmouth Community Hospital.

HEALTHWATCH TORBAY will provide details of how you can comment on the plans as soon as they have these details.  In the meantime, they have provided a link below to the Devon CCG proposals.

Apart from five years studying in Oxford I’ve lived most of my life in London where for many years I was Head of English in a prestigious girls’ school, but since taking early retirement and heading West to be nearer to my two daughters - settling in Torbay with my wife, Anna, in 2011 - I’ve worked in the voluntary sector. I took on the role of Service Provider, for example, promoting the Red Cross Torbay Navigators Project, while now I’m a Trustee and part of the Media Team for our local Healthwatch. I’m a governor at Torquay Academy, too, giving me the chance to stay up to date with what’s happening in the world of education. Other interests, aside from friends and family, include art and art history, reading - from contemporary fiction and poetry to Elizabethan/Jacobean literature - history, politics, cooking, walking, and music, in particular Bob Dylan, the blues, and early Elvis. I love writing, too, with one novel published so far – Elvis in Wonderland – and another, Who’s There?, that still needs plenty of work!
