Urgent care patients will be seen at Camborne-Redruth minor injury unit

Patients coming to the Royal Cornwall Hospital’s Urgent Treatment Centre/Emergency Department in Truro with less serious illness and injury are now being redirected to Camborne-Redruth Community Hospital Minor Injury Unit for assessment and treatment.
This will allow staff at the Royal Cornwall Hospital to focus on critically unwell or injured patients at the Emergency Department, as part of our Covid19 emergency planning.

Patients with minor illness should continue to use local pharmacies, their own GP, NHS 111 and, if needed, Out of Hours GP services.

The Camborne-Redruth Community Hospital Minor Injury Unit is open 7 days a week from 8.00 am until 10.00 pm. The postcode for satnav directions is: TR15 3ER. To access the minor injury unit, please use the outpatient department entrance, which is clearly signposted on site.

Patients with significant limb injuries which cannot wait until the following morning can be seen overnight at the Limb Trauma Unit now open at St Michael’s Hospital in Hayle.
