Stratton Community Hospital provides a small number of hospital beds for local people.

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.

Minor injury unit

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/

Think NHS 111 First

 

Visiting (updated January 2021)

Due to the current increase in cases nationally and locally, we urgently need to reduce the number of people coming to our hospitals.

We have therefore taken the decision to restrict visiting unless:

  • A person is receiving end of life care, regardless of their covid status
  • Are visiting a child – one parent
  • Is in the person’s best clinical interests and agreed in line with our internal processes

If you are visiting in one of these circumstances, please arrange this with us first. We will ask you to sign a risk assessment. We will provide you with personal protective equipment.

We know you will want to stay in touch while your relative or friend is in hospital. Patients are able to use their own or one of our mobile devices to telephone, video call or message.

Please bear in mind the confidentiality of other patients when you do this.

Our ward staff should be able to help you to stay in touch using a mobile device. You can also contact or arrange to send messages via our patient experience team by calling 01208 834620 or emailing cft.patientexperience@nhs.net

 

Community Treatment Centre

10pm to 8am every day by contacting NHS111.

The service is provided by an advanced clinician from Kernow Health CIC, who deliver the county’s urgent care service out of hours. The service is accessed by calling NHS 111 and treats people who would historically attended the minor injury unit out of hours, or who need an appointment with the out of hours GP service.
