Call 111 before going to the minor injury unit. Do not just turn up, as you may be directed elsewhere or have to wait longer.

Newquay Community Hospital

Newquay Community Hospital provides inpatient care and a range of clinics to people in the local town and the surrounding area.

We recommend patients bring a few personal items with them to make their stay in hospital more comfortable.

A number of outpatient clinics are provided from the hospital. Your appointment letter will provide more information. If you have any queries, do not hesitate to call.

New x-ray upgrade reduces waiting times

Work was recently completed on the new x-ray upgrade project and means more patients can now be seen every day.

Short-term changes to opening hours of the minor injury in Newquay

From 17 March 2024 Newquay Minor Injury Unit will open from 8am to 8pm from Friday to Tuesday. The unit will be closed on Wednesday and Thursdays, which are its quietest days.

The hospital’s x-ray department is also midway through a major refurbishment. The refurbishment will see the installation of new digital x-ray equipment which will give clinicians access to faster and better-quality images.

We have had to make what we hope will be a short-term change to the minor injury unit opening hours, after several members of the team left. However, we are pleased to announce that our recruitment campaign has been a success. We have new minor injury unit practitioners joining us soon.

We will continue to review the operational running of our minor injury unit while our new practitioners undergo the necessary training.

We are also talking to GPs and the NHS Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Integrated Care Board to see if the space could be used by the local primary care hub on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
