• Devon health scrutiny committee investigates Torrington bed closures

    9th September 2015 | News | Claire
  • We are looking at whether to refer the decision to the secretary of state for health. If we do this, we must make a very strong case as it is extremely difficult to justify this approach, following the introduction of the health and social care act.

    Our second meeting (not open to the public) is tomorrow and we are interviewing a number of witnesses.

    Full health and wellbeing scrutiny takes place on Monday (14 September) and we will be examining the decision to close Ottery, Axminster and Crediton Hospital beds and most minor injuries units in Eastern Devon.

    The press release appears to have been written by NEW Devon CCG for some reason.
