What we do:

NHS and CARE working with communities and local organisations to improve people’s lives

One Devon is a collaboration of the NHS and local councils, as well as a wide range of other organisations like the voluntary sector, who are working together to improve the lives of people in Devon.

One of the lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic is that people need support which is joined up across local councils, the NHS and voluntary and community organisations – One Devon aims to do just that.

We want to make our system as strong and effective as possible, through partnership working and with the ambition to tackle health inequalities, help communities thrive and achieve the very best for everyone.
