Health chiefs in Devon have apologised for failing to consult people about a decision to move beds from one hospital to another.
There was an angry reaction when it was announced that the in-patient unit at Axminster Hospital would be temporarily closed and moved to Seaton Hospital eight miles away to cope with nurse shortages in both sites.
Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust has now halted the move and has started a four-week public consultation over whether the transfer should take place.
We know that within Devon and nationally we have significant staffing deficits, particularly with the nursing workforce, so on a daily basis we need to ensure we have the right staff in the right place to be able to give the right level of care to our patients.
What we clearly haven't done is we haven't been able to express to the public the clarity in the situation that we face.
This process intends to look at how we can get active dialogue to look at the problem we have and what solution we can get to in terms of what future for the hospital could be.
