Stratton Community Hospital
Stratton Community Hospital provides a small number of hospital beds for local people and a minor injury unit. Free car parking is available at this hospital.
A number of outpatient clinics are provided from the hospital. Your appointment letter will provide more information but if you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to call.
We recommend patients bring a small number of items with them to make their stay in hospital more comfortable.
To help prevent the spread of the coronavirus and to keep our patients and colleagues as safe as possible we are only permitting visits on compassionate grounds. Please do not visit your relative or friend without first ringing and speaking to a staff member.

The hospital’s minor injury unit is run by highly skilled nurses who are available to treat a range of minor conditions. If you are unsure whether your injury can be treated here, NHS 111 is available to provide further advice. The unit is also able to treat minor illnesses.
Backgound on the opening hours of the minor injury unit
Due to staffing shortages, we announced that we had taken the decision to temporarily close Stratton Minor Injury Unit (MIU) overnight on 7 December 2018. The unit was previously open 24/7. The reduced opening hours were based on the times when the unit was most in demand eg between 8am and 10pm. Read the latest update dated March 2019.
In July 2019, an innovative partnership approach which will enable overnight services to return to Stratton Hospital was endorsed by Cornwall Council’s Health and Adult Social Care Overview and Scrutiny Committee. The trailblazing proposal will see overnight services return to the Hospital in August 2019, in the form of a new service which is being described as a’ Community Treatment Centre’. Read more about the Community Treatment Centre.
Due to unprecendented pressures in January 2020 the community treatment centre temporarily closed to allow the staff to support the health of the whole county. The service was reinstated in March 2020.

The community treatment centre is available between 10pm and 8am by contacting NHS111.
