Torbay Hospital has beaten hundreds of other hospitals to be ‘highly commended’ at a prestigious event recognising the best in patient safety.
South Devon Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, the trust which runs Torbay Hospital, received the ‘_Highly Commended’ award for its Ward Improvement Programme, improving safety, effectiveness and efficiency on wards.
I am absolutely delighted that the Trust has been highly commended in this category. Not only is it great news for the Trust; it is also good news for our patients and sends a clear message that the Trust takes the issue of patient safety very seriously.
The awards were presented by the Nursing Times and Health Service Journal.
