Who, what, where, why when?


NDHT and the RD&E are proposing to merge on 1 April 2022.


We are planning to merge so we can combine our resources and expertise to improve the resilience and sustainability of health services across North and East Devon.


We are proposing to legally become one organisation on 1 April 2022.


Staff and patients will see very little difference from day one. The same services will still be offered from all of our hospitals and teams. Over the next 2-3 years teams will be working together to merge their corporate and clinical services to serve our combined population.


If the merger is approved, the new Foundation Trust will continue to provide acute, community and specialist services across Exeter, Eastern, Mid and Northern Devon.
