Planned remedial works at Launceston Community Hospital
Some essential planned refurbishment of Launceston Hospital is due to start of 17 June and is expected to finish on 6 September 2019.
The work will see enhancements made to the fire safety of the hospital including a new alarm system and upgrading some of the fire doors. The work will also include relocating the electrical switchgear and introduce a new nurse call bell system. The work will be carried out in four phases concluding in early September 2019.
In order to ensure we are in a position to deliver the best possible care to patients while this work happens, we will temporarily relocate inpatient facilities to both Liskeard (6 beds) and Stratton (4 beds). Members of the multi-disciplinary care team will also relocated during this period to either Liskeard and Stratton Hospitals to support the additional inpatients.
Community and outpatient clinics, x-ray and the minor injury service will on the whole continue to operate with minimal disruptions to patients. Should we need to cancel any clinics or services we will ensure patients are contacted individually.
