Our Localities


Community health and social care services for Plymouth are organised around four geographic localities, with two additional citywide localities. Outside of Plymouth, health services are organised into a South Hams Locality and a West Devon Locality.

Locality working brings together physical and mental healthcare across Plymouth, South Hams and West Devon as well as adult social care in Plymouth, with:

  • Easier access
  • Faster responses
  • Improved communication between teams and organisations
  • A more seamless service for those requiring mental and physical health services
  • Equal access to all our services
  • An improved ability to wrap care around families
  • Integrating services reducing duplication and unnecessary waste
  • Savings spent more on health and social care, and improving our services
