Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust

Quick Launch

Corporate documents library for Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust

Below you will find a variety of different documents that health and social care professionals use to make decisions and support the day to day running of the Trust.

To enable us to meet these and other requirements, the Trust has a comprehensive set of policies covering its activities which give clear guidance as to how those activities should be conducted.

Please note that that any document listed here is the version that is used in our Trust and is the most up to date document.

On the 1st September 2015 the Trust’s responsibilities formally changed and therefore some documents may still refer to an older date or to the organisation as Torbay Care Trust, NHS Devon or Torbay and Southern Devon Health and Care Trust. We are currently in the process of updating all of these documents but whilst this happens we will continue to work to the most recent policy or procedure listed here.

All our patient information leaflets are available on our main website.
