Health Select Committee visit to Torbay

I was pleased to welcome fellow members of the Health Select Committee to Torbay to see for themselves the groundbreaking achievements of the Torbay Care Trust, Baywide and Torbay Council in pooling their budgets and putting in place integrated health and social care. The ethos of having a single point of contact and plans in place to avoid unnecessary admissions to hospital together with arrangements to make sure that people can return home as soon as possible, have put Torbay ahead of so many other areas.

The Health Select Committee report into adult social care will be published on 8th February.
