• Ottery St Mary stroke unit to move to RD&E imminently

  • It was made clear at that time that the 15 beds were a temporary measure and would eventually move to the RD&E.

    It appears that our hospital has now lost its general medical beds, following a decision in July 2015. A hopelessly short-sighted decision in my view.

    However, it is a further blow to the hospital as the news comes as NHS Property Services takes over ownership of 12 community hospitals in Eastern Devon, including Ottery St Mary’s.

    The plans for a health hub at Ottery St Mary Hospital appear to have gone rather quiet, which worries me. I will be pursuing this issue in the coming days.
