Teignmouth engagement 2018

Developing proposals
What happens next​

Feedback gained during this year’s six week engagement (please see below) has been informing the development of proposals for change. 

This briefing paper​ summarises the reconfiguration steps to date and outlines the key drivers for change.

The CCG is working with stakeholders to develop a vision for services in Teignmouth - to provide excellent integrated services by co-locating in a new health and wellbeing centre.

Moving forward, the GPs in Teignmouth are responsible for outlining the benefits of co-locating their main surgeries in a new health and wellbeing centre, alongside the health and wellbeing team and voluntary sector and for consulting with their registered patients about such a move.  

The CCG is developing proposals for consultation in relation to those other services which are provided in Teignmouth Hospital, in line with the overall vision for Teignmouth, the above co-location and the drivers for change.

Feedback gained during this year’s six week engagement (please see below) has been informing the development of proposals for change. 

Teignmouth engagement: 30 April to 8 June 2018

Engagement feedback​

Earlier this year (30 April to 8 June), South Devon and Torbay Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), supported by local GPs, Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust and Volunteering in Health asked people in Teignmouth, Dawlish and the surrounding area for views on ideas designed to ensure health services can meet future needs.

In particular, we were seeking views on GP practices in Teignmouth co-locating in a new purpose built health and wellbeing centre where they could be joined by other services and representation of the voluntary sector.

Many people supported this idea although differing views were expressed about where any centre should be. Most of those who responded to the survey stressed the importance of a centre being accessible by foot, public transport and car. They also felt it should be central to Teignmouth and fit in with the local environment.​



Feedback report

The views expressed during this period are summarised in a feedback report published 14 September.

Representatives of the Coastal Engagement Group – which included patient participation groups, the voluntary sector, Teignmouth Hospital League of Friends and the town council – worked with the CCG and the Trust to ensure that the report is a fair and accurate reflection of what people said.

The report was also discussed at a meeting of the Coastal Engagement Group which endorsed it as an accurate summary of what people said.
