What's new

Choose Better

The winter season is well and truly upon us which inevitably leads to a rise in people experiencing health issues. We want to help you get the right treatment for your ailment or condition and to let you know that Torbay Hospital's Accident & Emergency department (A&E) isn't always the most appropriate place. Many people could be more efficiently treated by other NHS services in the area, often closer to home too. Take a look at this short film to help you choose better!

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.

All the latest news about the Trust is available in our press releases. We also have an archive of news from the previous years.

  • League donation means more accurate hearing test results for childrenLeague donation means more accurate hearing test results for children
    South Devon babies and children now have access to a much improved hearing test system thanks to a generous donation of £6,450 from the Torbay Hospital League of Friends.The donation has enabled South Devon Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, which runs Torbay Hospital, to buy four new visual response audiometry (VRA) cabinets. VRA cabinets work on a reward system - these newer models with multiple rewards mean the test results are likely to be more accurate and successful, which is particularly important when it comes to fitting hearing aids for those with a permanent childhood hearing impairment.
