Keep Dartmouth Hospital in Devon open!
This petition had 403 supporters
At a meeting of the South Devon and Torbay Clinical Commissioning Group on Friday 20th January 2017 plans to sell multiple hospital sites including Dartmouth Hospital were recommended.
Dartmouth, being as remote and isolated as it is, relies heavily on having it's own hospital especially as it has a very high percentage of elderly persons. Dartmouth Hospital is especially important because getting to Torbay Hospital from Dartmouth can often take almost an hour especially once you factor in waiting times for the ferry or navigating down windy roads. Those who need to be monitored in hospital and people who need to go for medical check-ups really benefit from having a local hospital near home. I urge the South Devon and Torbay Clinical Commissioning Group to reverse their decision regarding Dartmouth hospital.
