Directions and contact details

At Torbay Hospital, a full emergency service is provided for residents and visitors to Torbay and South Devon who have suffered a significant injury within the last 48 hours, or who have developed a sudden illness within the last six hours.

An emergency is a ‘critical or life-threatening situation’.

Examples are a loss of consciousness, chest pain, severe bleeding or major trauma. More conditions and information can be found on the NHS website.

Other urgent care needs

If your need is urgent, but not an emergency, please consider contacting NHS 111 by calling 111 or visiting 111.nhs.uk. Advisors can advise and signpost you to the most appropriate service for your condition. Minor injuries and ailments can often be treated by a GP, a pharmacist or by self-care at home.
