14 minutes:
the average time required for inhabitants of Normandy's sustainable urban areas to all reach health care facilities by car

5 minutes:
the average time required to reach the family GP

Inhabitants of Normandy's sustainable urban area's (burghs and small towns) reside, on average, a 14 minute drive away from all major healthcare facilities (doctor, nurse, chemist, physiotherapist, dentist, ambulance, maternity hospital, casualty department, short-stay hospitals/healthcare centres, medium to long-stay hospitals/healthcare centres).
Throughout the region, less than fifty communes are located more than thirty minutes by car from the entire range of healthcare facilities. Furthermore, they are relatively dispersed throughout the territory. Only 15,000 inhabitants are concerned (i.e. 1.5% of small town sustainable urban areas, compared to a national figure of 12.5%).
If hospital services are excluded (a small number throughout the territory), access time for Normandy's inhabitants living outside major conurbations are reduced to an average of only five minutes.
In 2004, Normandy's healthcare facilities collectively provided 10,200 beds or places. With 71 beds for 10,000 inhabitants, Normandy is better equipped than the national average (68 beds).

An equipment level above the national average with regard to short stay hospital beds.
Three out of four hospital beds are within public healthcare facilities.
Both capacity and duration are on the decrease for short stay admissions.
Home-based care is developing.
In 2005, Normandy had a total of 9,555 beds for complete hospitalisation. Normandy's facilities are above the French average (with 4.15 complete hospitalisation beds for 1,000 inhabitants, compared to a national figure of 3.72). This higher level of equipment is essentially due to an increased number of beds in medical units (2.3 compared to 1.8 for France). Short stays represent 67% of complete hospital beds in the public sector and 52% in the private sector. The number of hospital beds in Normandy devoted to follow-up and rehabilitation care is lower than the national average (1.37 beds per 1,000 inhabitants compared to 1.49 on a national scale).
