About us

The Devon System are working together to improve the health and wellbeing of local people.

As a system, we face considerable challenges and as we move into the future, we will need to focus on a number of key areas including:

  • Seek solutions that work for the system as a whole.
  • Standardise practice and services where it makes sense to do so.
  • Focus on cost reduction and cost containment.
  • Recognise that participation will be required at system, locality, neighbourhood and organisational level on the priority areas.
  • Invest in out of hospital models which are right care in the right place.
  • Ensure equitable distribution of funding and outcomes by locality.
  • Prevent investments that total more than the funding allocation growth received into the system.
  • Consider financial decisions alongside quality, safety and any impact on patient experience of care.
  • Share risks and benefits across the system and ensure they are fully understood by all parties.

As part of the Devon System, NHS Devon Clinical Commissioning Group is one of the biggest CCGs in England, serving a patient population of nearly 1.2 million people with a budget of more than £1.8 billion and is a key component of our Devon Health and Care System.

We plan local healthcare and buy services, including acute, community, mental health and ambulance services.

Our diverse area of operation includes the cities of Plymouth and Exeter, remote rural areas such as Exmoor and Dartmoor, and coastal areas including Torbay and Ilfracombe. We work closely with three main local authorities: Devon County Council, Plymouth City Council and Torbay Council.

We work with our local communities and other partners in our area, to improve people’s health and make sure they can receive high quality, local services.

We face considerable challenges and to tackle these we have six shared ambitions as a system for the next ten years:

  1. Effective and efficient care
  2. Integrated Care Model
  3. A Devon-wide deal
  4. Children and young people
  5. Digital Devon
  6. Equally Well

In response to the latest government announcement, to increase the national rollout of vaccinations and boosters, we urgently require registered healthcare professionals to join our staff bank.
