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
We do not allow visitors to the Surgical Unit.
When coming to collect a patient, please give your name and the name of the patient to the Hospital Main Reception, who will then inform the Surgical Unit you have arrived.
Directions to the Surgical Unit
The Surgical Unit is on the ground floor at West Cornwall Hospital in Penzance. When you arrive at the main entrance, go past the main reception and turn right. Follow the corridor to the end until you reach the surgical unit.
