Installation of a modular ward and diagnostic pad at Camborne Redruth

Works to install a new diagnostic pad and modular stroke rehabilitation ward at Camborne Redruth Community Hospital are now picking up pace. We are very sorry, but both sets of building works will mean periods of disruption onsite.

This is due to the placement of a crane to lift the modular ward into place, construction of the diagnostic pad, and the digging of a trench to lay additional power cables.

The building works will mean a reduction in parking onsite, as follows:

  • the long car park next to the estates’ building is closed throughout the works
  • a number of spaces in the car park outside the main entrance are cordoned off. This is expected to last until Thursday 28 March
  • the car park outside the minor injury unit will be closed from Thursday 21 March until the evening of Sunday 24 March

Should unforeseen issues affect either set of works, dates may need to change. Any further updates will be shared as the works move forward.

While the car park outside the minor injury unit is closed, all departments, clinics and services should be accessed via the main entrance to the hospital. This includes the minor injury unit. The main entrance is located down the road to the left as you arrive onsite. Longreach House and Bassett Unit can be accessed as normal.

We recognise that these works present significant parking challenges. Alternative parking arrangements for staff, patients and visitors are now in place. A park and ride shuttle bus service is operating between Morrisons supermarket in Pool and the hospital. This will remain in place until 8pm on Friday 12 April. The Williams Travel buses are running at regular intervals between 5.30am and 8pm, Monday to Friday. To use this service, please park in the spaces to the far right of the store entrance, next to the grassed area. The buses depart from this area. Please note that Morrisons’ car park gates are closed and locked at 11pm Monday to Saturday and at 5pm on Sundays.

During the daytime throughout the building works, we are asking that hospital parking is left for patients and visitors. Spaces for Blue Badge holders will also be prioritised.

While we understand your frustrations, we kindly ask you not to park on the verges or along kerbed areas of the hospital site when spaces are full. This will ensure emergency vehicles have easy access to our site, and that staff, patients and visitors can enter and move around the site safely.

We apologise for the inconvenience and hope you will work with us to support this major investment in the site.
