Torbay has one of the highest number of care home beds in England and this patient group often has significant medical needs. So in 2017, the 10 GP practices in Torbay created Torbay Care Home Visiting Service (TCHVS); a specialist multidisciplinary team supporting care home patients throughout Torbay. The team is made up of local NHS GPs, nurses, paramedics and pharmacists. They have expertise in Care home medicine, including frailty, dementia, medication side effects, advance care planning and palliative care. They look after our patients in care homes alongside our practice staff.
