Thank you Reply Open Daw on March 27, 2020 at 3:14 pm Hi Martin, it is to prioritise staff and services, according to Torbay and S Devon NHS Trust: ‘Due to prioritising our emergency services in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are experiencing difficulties in sustaining staffing levels at our Minor Injuries Units (MIU) in Dawlish and Totnes Community Hospitals. From 4pm, 19th March, we are closing Dawlish and Totnes MIUs and referring anyone with a minor injury to the MIU at Newton Abbot Community Hospital’ Thanks, Olivia Reply Submit a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
