Investment in our NHS & Social Care services

Neil is working with health leaders to ensure local NHS and Social Care services in Devon are up to scratch. 

After strongly opposing the local clinical commissioning group's decision to reduce beds in Tiverton and Honiton, Neil is now working with local health leaders and the Department for Health to ensure NHS sites use their capacity and provide the services people need. 

Devon has one of the oldest average population ages in the country, with many people coming to Devon to retire. That means that more people are likely to require healthcare. Neil believes the population age should be reflected in service provision and, in particular, is fighting for better use of local community hospitals for 'step down' care. 

Neil has also campaigned for higher wages for local NHS and care staff.
