Wheal Prosper

On Wheal Prosper Ward, we look after patients that need to be isolated. We have twelve isolation beds and look after patients with a wide range of conditions.
We hold a relatives’ surgery every Wednesday at 3pm, when the ward sister and deputy ward sister are available for you to drop in and ask questions. We can also arrange another time for you to see them if that is more convenient for you. We also suggest that one person is nominated to call the ward for updates and act as the patient’s single point of contact
