Devon Referral Support Services (DRSS) is a referrals contact centre which supports individuals in getting the right advice, care or treatment in a timely manner, and we are very passionate about this! We can't do this work alone though and work closely with a wide range of people, groups and organisations within our local communities, and further afield, to build collaborative, sustainable systems and solutions within the context of local CCG priorities.

We also provide a range of services that complement and support the contact centre:

  • facilitation of service and commissioning redesign across Devon to address financial recovery (such as demand management).
  • managing localised pages of the National Directory of Services (DoS) to ensure the database reflects current service provision in Devon, Cornwall and Isle of Scilly.
  • managing 18 community clinics, and booking the physiotherapy service in South Devon.

DRSS are part of the Collaborative Business Service arm of NEW Devon CCG and provide services for a number of organisations including the 3 local CCGs, NHS England and Devon Partnership Trust for a population of 1.3 million people.

DRSS provides services to NEW Devon CCG, South Devon and Torbay CCG and the eastern locality of Kernow CCG.
