A new modular stroke rehabilitation ward is due to be installed at Camborne Redruth Community Hospital. We are very sorry, but there will be periods of disruption while the interim ward is put in place.
The work will mean a reduction in parking on site because we need to create site offices and compounds for builders.
The first phase of work is underway and means the long car park next to the estates’ building is now closed. At this time, all other car park areas are open as normal.
More disruption is expected in early December, due to the placement of cranes to lift the unit into place. This will include the temporary closure of the car park outside the minor injury unit. During the daytime of this period, we are asking that onsite parking is left for patients and visitors. Spaces for Blue Badge holders will also be prioritised. We are seeking alternative parking arrangements and updates will be provided in due course.
We apologise for the inconvenience and hope you will work with us to support this major investment in the site.
If you need mental health care, call 01209 318 988.
