The Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust is committed to offering you treatment at the earliest opportunity. Management of the Covid-19 crisis has meant an increase in waiting times which we are working hard to reduce.
Waiting times for NHS services have increased significantly since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic across Cornwall and the rest of the country. While many aspects of day-to-day life are returning to how they were before the pandemic, COVID-19 still impacts our local NHS services. Our hospitals are under increased pressure and there is still a very high demand for healthcare services and hospital beds across Cornwall.
We are taking a number of steps to try and improve this situation and our teams are working hard to see you as quickly as we possibly can. We are reviewing patients who have been waiting a long time as we know some people’s conditions, needs and treatment wishes will change over time. All patients waiting are prioritised according to their clinical need and we are doing our utmost to ensure you get the treatment you require as soon as possible.
