NHS Devon is the organisation responsible for the majority of county's NHS budget, and develops a plan to improve people's health, deliver high-quality care and better value for money.
What we do
Within our annual budget of £2.3 billion, we plan and buy the majority (two-thirds) of the hospital and community NHS services for the county, including:
- most planned hospital care
- rehabilitative care
- urgent and emergency care (including out-of-hours)
- general practice (GP)
- most community health services, such as community nursing and physiotherapy
- maternity and new-born services (excluding neonatal intensive care)
- infertility services
- children and young people's health services
- mental health and learning disability services
- continuing healthcare for people with ongoing health needs, such as nursing care
We involve local patients, carers and the public, and organisations such as the Healthwatch Devon, Plymouth and Torbay, to help us better understand local need and commission high-quality care that is safe, effective and focused on the patient experience.
