The people that best understand communities are the people who live and work in them. One Towns are local partnerships that bring residents and service providers together to work on things that matter to their community. One Northern Devon is supporting the development of One Towns in each of the six main towns. Four are now established, plus one village. Recognising that health services have only a 10% overall impact on their patients’ health, local GPs have taken the lead in four of the One communities that have been established.
