The area of Devon is divided up into three NHS Devon Localities. For each of the subject areas below, a NHS Devon Locality profile has been generated, containing a range of information for each area.
The area of the NHS Localities are based on the old Primary Care Trust areas and as such do not completely match the three Devon County Council localities , which are based on District Council areas. A map of the NHS Devon Localities, showing how they differ from the Devon County Council Localities, can be found here.
It should be noted that the primary purpose of Joint Strategic Needs Assessments is for health and social care commissioners to plan services, and as such these are technical documents, which is reflected in the language and level of complexity involved. A glossary of terms can be found here.
