A carer from Torrington told us she is extremely concerned about proposals to close wards at community hospitals across North Devon.
Winnie Hollingsworth cares for her husband Ian who suffered a stroke after a triple heart bypass operation. But Torrington's community hospital has already lost its inpatient beds due to a previous round of cuts, so Ian has to have a hospital bed in the front room of their terraced house.
Mrs Hollingsworth believes that if more inpatient beds are lost across the district then more people will be faced with the same situation that they're suffering.
The Northern, Eastern and Western Devon Clinical Commissioning Group has issued the following statement in response to criticisms over funding of maternity services.
There's concern tonight for pregnant women and new mums in North Devon as maternity services are being cut by 20%.
The Healthcare Trust says it will have to stop many home midwife visits. The prospect for women, though, is having to travel to a new midwife hub for care.
The Trust says around £1.1 million will be cut from its budget from the contract by the newly established Northern, Eastern and Western Devon Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).
This is in line with changes to the national tariff which came into effect in April.
The Northern Devon Healthcare Trust is cutting maternity funding by 20%.
It says it will have to reduce home visits for mums apart from in exceptional circumstances.
The new doctor-based group that funds the Trust says it will give an additional one million pounds this year to smooth the transition but the Trust says it still won't be able to provide the same service.
