    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    NEW Devon CCG ("CCG") started a public consultation process about bed closures in community hospitals in East Devon and caring for people in their own homes on October 17th 2016. This ended on January 6th 2017. The CCG proposal to close inpatient beds at Honiton Community Hospital was approved on March 2nd 2017 by their Governing Body.

    This decision followed from a flawed consultation process based on the document Your Future Care in which Honiton Hospital was not one of the options. In additon CCG are unable to explain how they will implement their proposed new model of care in the community, the costs that will accrue nor how they will safeguard the sick and vulnerable.

    Local residents, councillors and League of Friends amongst others wish to apply for a judicial review. We have identified the law firm we wish to instruct as they have significant experience in this domain however they will not instruct a barrister until we can demonstrate that we have an initial tranche of funding in place.

      If they persist in this drastic action, we will all be the worst for it.
