Local people invited to open day at Torrington Hospital

THE NHS health and social care team in Torrington is inviting local people to the first of a series of open days at the town’s community hospital.

The first event takes place from 10am to 3pm on Tuesday 29 September.

Visitors can meet members of the team, including the new community matron, and find out more about the hospital’s transformation into a health and social care hub.


There will be more information about the new, extended and ongoing clinics and services available, including day treatments, while people can suggest things they’d like to see at the hub.

“We were keen to hold some open days to enable local people to meet the team and find out more about the many services we offer at the hospital,” said Nikki Kennelly, health and social care community services manager in Torridge for the Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust.

“Visitors can also learn about the care and support we provide to patients and families in their own homes, helping people to maintain their independence.

“There will be an opportunity to take a basic health check, including blood pressure, and find out more about local voluntary sector services.

Refreshments will be available.

People arriving by car are asked to park nearby as the hospital car park will be for patients attending clinics only.

The next open days will take place on Wednesday 21 October and Thursday 26 November, both from 10am to 3pm.
