Council and NHS seek views of local community

An NHS trust and a town council are working together on the future of a former community hospital and are keen to hear views from the local community.

Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust and Dartmouth Town Council are exploring whether the community can buy the former Dartmouth Hospital site (pictured), and whether its redevelopment could include uses specifically to benefit people in and around Dartmouth. They now want to hear about what new facilities local people would like to see on the site.

The former hospital site is no longer needed for healthcare and a new, £4.8m Health and Wellbeing Centre is being built at the top of the town.

The Trust and the Council are asking local people to share their views in a survey being run for them by the independent health and social care champion, Healthwatch. The survey is live now and runs until 08 December.
