When the decision to remove the inpatient beds at the hospital was taken last year, the Northern, Eastern and Western Devon Clinical Commissioning Group (NEW Devon CCG) made a commitment to keep the hospital open and use it to deliver a variety of outpatient services.
But according to the Central Devon MP the lack of a timescale for the delivery of these new services from the RD and E is causing concern.
Mr Stride said: “The conversation I had with the Chief Executive was very direct – I made it clear that the lack of progress in bringing forward a plan for the new outpatient services at Okehampton Hospital is very disappointing.
“Residents in and around Okehampton deserve a firm timeline for the delivery of services. Some services have been provided but the progress originally promised during a meeting I called in November last year has not materialised.”
