The formation of this group began when the Torbay Health trust closed the Dartmouth Cottage Hospital before finding an alternative location to serve Dartmouth’s healthcare needs. After their negotiations with the owners of River-View, a private care facility, collapsed Dartmouth was left without suitable healthcare facilities, including sufficient beds to meet the needs of the community
This was followed by a well attended public meeting with our local MP Dr Sarah Wollaston at St Saviors Church and resulted in the formation of the Dartmouth Healthcare Action Group.
Chaired by Michael Mills this group is campaigning on behalf of the people of Dartmouth to secure adequate healthcare services and beds for, what is effectively, an isolated community, surrounded by the river Dart.
This website will keep the community informed on progress with our negotiations. We will publish news here:
