West Cornwall Hospital
This is a vibrant local hospital providing high quality, safe services to the population of West Cornwall which is being further developed as an acute diagnostic and treatment hospital. This has begun with major projects underway to create a new surgical treatment unit and to expand the hospital's renal dialysis unit. The Casualty Unit is managed as part of the Royal Cornwall Hospital NHS Trust Emergency Department which sets and oversees standards. There is an experienced doctor within the unit between the hours of 9 amand 11 pm.Outside these hours the first point of contact is a nurse practitioner supported by telephone advice from the specialist doctors at the Emergency Department at the Royal Cornwall Hospital. Across the Trust, reducing the risk of hospital associated infection remains the top priority. Last year saw a remarkable turnaround in performance across the Trust. Our hospitals are now among the top Trusts in the country with low levels of MRSA and Clostridium Difficile infections. During 2009/10 MRSA bloodstream infections fell by 84% from 44 to 7 and Clostridium Difficile infections feel by 57% from 131 to 56.
The Trust has teaching hospitals status as part of the Peninsula Medical School. Keeping at the forefront medical advances, the Trust has led developments in many areas, and is committed to maximising the range of specialist care that can be offered locally.
