People from across our organisation have contributed to a series of videos that we hope will help you stay well this winter and support you to seek help if needed.

Stopping the spread of infections

Dr Joanne Watson, our Director of Infection Prevention and Control, talks about the impact that norovirus and other winter illnesses can have on our hospital services, what you can do to prevent the spread of infection and when to seek help.

Getting the help you need

James Merrell, Matron of our Emergency Department at Torbay Hospital, talks about the different services and support available when you need help, and how you can help us over winter by choosing the most appropriate service for your need.

Making positive lifestyle changes

Nickie Jones from our Healthy Lifestyles team talks about some of the ways that we can maintain a healthy lifestyle over winter, and how the team can support you to set achievable goals that contribute towards your personal lifestyle ambitions.

Supporting people in the community and those that care for them

Katy Heard, Carers Lead, and Andrew Moorhouse, Community Services Manager, talk about the current challenges in providing social care to help people to live safely at home, and what support is available to people who might be taking on some caring responsibilities for a family member, friend or neighbour.
