Seaton and Area Health Matters

Seaton and Area Health Matters process gets off to a successful start

Posted on

Over 60 people from community groups in the Seaton area spent yesterday morning in The Gateway (Seaton Town Hall) discussing the challenges to health in the town and surrounding villages. The meeting, chaired by Cllr Jack Rowland and addressed by (among others) Em Wilkinson-Bryce of the RD&E and Dr Simon Kerr of NEW Devon CCG, had wide-ranging discussions which launch a process to try to define the health services the area needs and the challenges we face. A full report will be drafted based on the eight sets of working group discussions and I will report further when this is available. A follow-up event to lead to more concrete conclusions is envisaged, probably in May.
