Consultation:

Great Torrington Healthcare

We would like to hear from people in Torrington and surrounding parishes who have received, or are receiving healthcare at home from district nurses, community matrons, community physiotherapists and occupational therapists or who are now accessing some of the day clinics at the hospital.

A task group is asking people to contact them with details of the care they received, when they received this, as well as their contact details in case the task group wish to hear more from them. If you wish to take part please email or write to the address below.

NEW Devon CCG and Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust introduced a new model of community based care in Torrington in 2013, which focusses on delivering healthcare to people in their own homes.

The pilot aims to improve local people’s access to healthcare as doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and others healthcare professionals come to, or closer to people’s homes, preventing people travelling any further than necessary to receive the necessary care.

A task group is looking at whether this a better way of providing care to patients and more cost effective. They would like to hear from people in Torrington and surrounding parishes who have received, or are receiving healthcare at home from district nurses, community matrons, community physiotherapists and occupational therapists or who are now accessing some of the day clinics at the hospital.
