The plan seeks to address local health and social care issues within the Devizes Community Area by linking to Local Area Agreements and the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment in order to identify and deliver projects to further improve the health and wellbeing of the community.
Devizes has a wide range of health services. Increasing demand on those services cannot always be met by statutory providers, hence the development of an Independent Sector Treatment Centre at Marshall Road, Devizes, providing elective day surgery for residents of Wiltshire. Our population is also expanding and the demographics trend is toward an older population. For both these reasons the area will require additional resources over the period covered by this plan.
