We remain very concerned about the lack of adequate community health care, particularly in the west of the county, following the closure of Poltair Community Hospital and the loss of its ten community hospital beds.   We are also disappointed at the news that Cornwall's Out Of Hours GP provision is, once again, to be put out to tender, risking further fragmentation of the service.  See our recent press statements in 'About Us'.
