Proposals – that could see Sidmouth lose its inpatient unit – have met with widespread opposition and more than 5,000 residents have signed petitions opposing the changes.

Respond to the consultation at http://www.newdevonccg.nhs.uk, or paper copies are available at the town’s library, leisure centres, hospital and GP surgeries. Call 01392 267642 to request a copy.”
