Launceston Community Hospital provides inpatient care and a range of clinics to people in Launceston and the surrounding area.
The hospital has two wards – one female and one male, with 4 additional side rooms. We recommend patients bring a small number of items with them to make their stay in hospital more comfortable. Physiotherapy is also available at the hospital.

X-ray services at Launceston hospital
Work to upgrade the x-ray facilities at Launceston hospital started on 1 November 2021 and will take approximately 12 weeks to complete (excluding Christmas).
The Trust is investing over £400,000 into infrastructure and equipment at Launceston hospital, paying for a new x-ray machine and building works to enable the installation of the new machine.
While the work is undertaken, the x-ray provision at the hospital will be suspended and will recommence in mid-February 2022.
Minor injury units and how to access urgent care if you need it
If you need urgent - but not emergency - NHS care in Cornwall, contact NHS 111.
Just contact NHS 111 by phone or online at any time of day or night, to find out where you should go and when.
If needed, expert clinicians will arrange for you to be seen at the Emergency Department (ED) or at our range of other treatment units. Please don’t just turn up, as you may be directed elsewhere or have to wait longer.
This is a new way of accessing urgent care in Cornwall, to make sure everyone stays as safe as possible during the pandemic. It will help the NHS manage the flow of patients when capacity in waiting rooms is much smaller than before, to maintain distancing and reduce the risk of infection.
It means you will get the right treatment, more quickly - and probably closer to home as well.
And if you’re a visitor to Cornwall, you don’t need to look up details of NHS services if you need urgent treatment – just phone 111 or go online at: 111.nhs.uk/
