VISITORS to Torbay Hospital will now see a new timeline marking next year’s 75th anniversary of the NHS.

The 30ft long work, which has just been unveiled, runs along the wall from the level 4 main entrance foyer, heading towards the Bayview Restaurant. and reflects the history of health and social care in Torbay and South Devon and looks towards what the future might hold.

The timeline features key dates and milestones from the opening of the first hospital in Dawlish in 1891, to the building of Dartmouth Health and Wellbeing Centre this year. It finishes with a television screen highlighting some of the organisation’s upcoming development.
