Neil met with Heather and Ann-Marie from the Royal College of Nurses to discuss nursing provision in Tiverton and Honiton.
There are 68 more nurses in Tiverton and Honiton since 2010 as the healthcare budget grows and demand increases.
"I pay tribute to our local nurses who do a fantastic job, day in and day out, caring for patients. We have an ageing population in Devon and so we will be increasingly reliant on quality nursing care. A big thanks to Heather and Ann-Marie for meeting to discuss these issues with me."
