Welcome to the Western Locality resource hub

 

This is a central source of information about healthcare in West Devon. Here you’ll find advice and instructions about: 

  • Medical conditions 
  • Treatments 
  • Medications 
  • Care options 
  • Hospital details 

Discover a range of videos, links, articles and supportive documents that will help you find the answer you’re looking for.  This resource hub was created by the Western Locality CCG; the group that oversees the activities of all NHS facilities in West Devon. 

The Western Locality spans across 260 miles, from Lifton to Salcome and Plymouth to North Bovey.   340,000 people live within this locality and 19% (over 65,000) are aged over 65. This is 3% higher than the national average and indicates a higher demand for care in this region.  Because of this, the Western Locality CCG created this resource hub to encourage self-care and inform patients and carers about treatment options.  

We hope these resources will support you throughout your healthcare journey and give you more control over your care.
