Junior doctors’ strike

The British Medical Association has announced that on 10 February junior doctors will take industrial action. During the industrial action, the following arrangements will apply

  • A&E, emergency and cancer services will all be running as usual
  • Some non-urgent appointments and operations will be cancelled – we have already contacted anyone affected for 10 February
  • Unless you hear from us directly, your appointment is going ahead as normal
  • If you are unsure about your appointment, please call the number on your hospital letter

We are sorry for the distress that we know this will cause those affected.

Please read the open letter from our Medical Director, Dr Rob Dyer, giving further information.

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

Welcome to your new integrated care organisation, bringing together South Devon Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust & Torbay and Southern Devon Health and Care NHS Trust.

This is an exciting milestone as, for the first time, one single organisation will be responsible for acute and community healthcare along with adult social care services. Our purpose is to provide high-quality, safe health 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.

We want to work in partnership with people and communities – putting them in the driving seat of their own health and care needs. We want services to be easily accessible and work in a way that means people only need to tell their story once. Most importantly, our vision for the future is that care is provided in or as close to a person’s home as possible.

Website updates

We are in the process of transferring the information from Torbay and Southern Devon Health and Care Trust onto this website and aim to have this complete as quickly as possible. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause in the meantime.
