NHS Devon is the organisation responsible for the majority of the county’s NHS budget, and develops a plan to improve people’s health, deliver high-quality care and better value for money.
The organisation is led by a diverse board, which includes representatives from local councils, primary care, acute hospitals, mental health, learning disability and neurodiversity.
Devon is the fourth largest county in England with a diverse and growing population. It includes the cities of Plymouth and Exeter, more than 45 towns – both rural and urban – and several hundred parishes.
Our aim is to improve people’s lives in Devon – wherever they live – to reduce health inequalities and make sure we can deliver these services for the long term.
NHS Devon is one of 42 integrated care boards across the country, and took over the statutory functions of clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) on 1 July 2022.
