Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust
Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust is an integrated organisation providing acute health care services from Torbay Hospital, community health services and adult social care.
The Trust runs Torbay Hospital as well as five community hospitals, stretching from Dawlish to Brixham. We also provide health and social care to the local population.
We have around 500,000 face-to-face contacts with patients in their homes and communities each year and see over 78,000 people in our A&E department annually. We serve a resident population of approximately 286,000 people, plus about 100,000 visitors at any one time during the summer holiday season.
We employ approximately 6,000 staff including frontline health and social care staff, such as nurses, occupational therapists, social workers, consultants, and physiotherapists who work in your home and from a range of different premises across Torbay and south Devon such as community hospitals and clinics. We also have over 800 volunteers who make a difference each and every day to the people we care for.
Our purpose is to provide safe, high-quality care and social care at the right time and in the right place to support the people of Torbay and South Devon to live their lives to the full. This means that as an organisation we want people to:
- Be empowered to manage their own health and care needs
- Work in partnership with professionals
- Only tell us their story once
- Access seamless care easily
- Have care in or close to home, whenever appropriate
- Work together as a community to look after health and care needs.
