Update from Suzanne Tracey, CEO, on the proposed integration between NDHT and RD&E

2 Feb 2022

I wanted to update you that we have now submitted our Full Business Case to NHS England and Improvement (NHSEI) for merging NDHT and RD&E. This takes us a step further on our path to integrating to become one organisation on 1 April 2022.

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

The benefits of the integration will initially impact more directly on the North Devon population through providing more stable, resilient services with the support of RD&E.

There are many shared benefits too. Becoming one organisation will make it easier for us to use our resources to meet our shared priorities, creating opportunities to improve our services.

As a single organisation, our size will help us better address the challenges faced as a Devon system. This should also help us attract investment and will improve our ability to recruit talented colleagues across sites.

You can read more about why we want to merge in the summary of the Full Business Case and by watching the short video below. We now need support from NHSEI and the RD&E Council of Governors to proceed.
