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

Welcome to Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust, your integrated care organisation that has brought together South Devon Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (Torbay Hospital) and Torbay and Southern Devon Health and Care NHS Trust (formerly responsible for all community health and adult social care services).

When we formed our integrated care organisation in October 2015 we became the first Trust in England to join-up hospital and community care with social care. As one organisation, we are working with our partners to improve the way we deliver safe, high-quality health and social care.

Learn more about our vision of health and care.
