 HEALTH AND CARE FORUM FOR SEATON LOCALITY

In 2015 Health professionals and others with an interest in Health and Care issues were invited to join a Forum for Seaton and the surrounding parishes.

Meetings of the Forum have been held at Seaton and District Hospital since 2015 and members are very keen to encourage others to join, especially in order to represent patients and the public and in particular younger members of the community.

The Forum is one of five in the East Devon area, the others being Axminster, Honiton, Ottery St. Mary and Sidmouth and this provides a route for taking more general issues forward.

With recent changes in health services it is even more important that local people have their say.

Anyone with an interest in Health and Care matters or belonging to a group that they feel should be represented on the Forum can contact Tina Trapani who chairs the Forum by phoning 01297 21788 or by emailing nantinmumber@yahoo.com

Welcome to our community links page. We have designed this page to help our patients to find the right support for them within our community. We have tried to research a wide range of resources available. Please see the following information with website links if you require any additional information on a specific community group. If you think of any other groups you feel may be beneficial for us to add please contact us at dccg.townsendenquiries@nhs.net , we will then review the information.
