Focused Workshop Series

As part of the ongoing involvement exercise on the future use of Torrington Community hospital, the Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust and the Northern, Eastern and Western Devon Clinical Commissioning Group are launching a series of workshops which will focus on explaining the key features of the project in detail.

Four main themes have been identified fom weekly drop-in sessions we have run at the hospital and in local parishes as the most important topics for the Torrington community. These are: a) home-based care, b) end of life care, c) opportunities for the hospital, d) inpatient beds. We are holding one focused workshop for each of these themes.

Workshops will run from 12:00noon until 2:30pm. The fist half of the session will invite feedback from you. We will ask you to think about the specific themes and and to feed back in a structured way. We will provide soup and a roll for lunch. This will be followed by a presentation and Q&A session from healthcare staff who work in the specific topic areas.

EVERYONE is WELCOME! We encourage you to attend all of the sessions as there will be lots of information available, as well as the feedback sessions. However, we do understand that people have other commitments so this may not be possible. We would be grateful if you could let us know whether you are planning to attend for catering purposes.
