Devon County Council Clinical Commissioning Group

Please be advised that the CCG have made temporary changes to their operating times at some Minor Injuries Units because of having to sustain staffing levels.

Dawlish and Totnes Community Hospitals are now closed for minor injuries, so anybody requiring minor injury attention should now refer to the MIU at Newton Abbot Community Hospital.

This will ensure prioritisation for Torbay Hospital to deal with our very sickest and emergency patients.

We ask everybody to appreciate what our NHS are doing for everybody at this critical time.
