Surgical Unit at West Cornwall Hospital

The Surgical Unit at West Cornwall Hospital is a day ward where we care for patients before and after surgery.
Our patients come to us for the day of their surgery, and we carry out all the necessary assessments and preparation before their operation and then monitor them after surgery before they are ready to go home. We have separate male and female wards.

Visiting the Surgical Unit

Open visiting on all wards is between 10am and 8pm, 7 days a week

Visiting outside these times can be discussed with the nurse or midwife in charge. See our Visiting Policy.
