What's new

Integrated care – the future of our local health and care services

2015 is set to be the start for many important changes to your local NHS as two trusts merge and the health and care community works together to deliver more integrated care.

South Devon Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and Torbay and Southern Devon Health and Care Trust plan to join together to become one new Integrated Care Organisation.

More information can be found on our integrating hospital and community care pages.

Building a healthier future

There are some major construction works currently being undertaken on the hospital site. We are committed to investing in patient care to ensure that we are providing the very best service for our patients, visitors and staff.

One of the projects we're currently undertaking is an exciting £14.5m project to deliver a brand new, state-of-the-art critical care unit (CCU), dedicated facilities for relatives, as well as a warm and inviting new main entrance with a café, a shop and additional public amenities.

  • Building a healthier future
    As part of exciting plans to provide a brand new, state-of-the-art Critical Care Unit, the current main entrance at Torbay Hospital is closing from Tuesday 26 May 2015.

    From this date, the temporary main entrance to the hospital will be via level two outpatients.

  • Public urged to 'visit responsibly' to protect patients from sickness bug
    Hospital staff are appealing to families and friends wanting to visit patients in Torbay Hospital to 'visit responsibly' to help reduce the spread of the sickness bug, Norovirus. Norovirus causes sickness and diarrhoea and is a common virus which circulates in the community and although usually more prevalent in the winter can occur at any time.

  • Torbay Hospital introduces Text Reminder Service
    Patients across South Devon will now have the opportunity to be reminded about their hospital outpatient appointments by way of text message. As most people tend to carry their mobile phones with them at all times and read every message they receive, it can be a far more effective and convenient communication method than email or post.
