Temporary Residents / Holidaymakers

 

Urgent care

Temporary residents and holidaymakers are asked to go online or call 111 first if they need urgent care.  The aim is to minimise the number of minor presentations to our emergency department and to direct people to the appropriate service or self-care options. 

 

Chronic Illness

Anyone staying in our catchment area that needs to speak with a GP regarding chronic disease management must telephone their registered GP. This will aid the management of your care as your GP will have a full record of your medical history and can also undertake a video or telephone consultation if required.

 

Medication

Anyone staying in our catchment area that needs to speak with a GP regarding medication also must telephone their registered GP

If you have run out of/lost your medication, your registered GP can send your prescription electronically to a local pharmacy here for you to collect.

 

Minor Injury

If you suffer from a minor injury, there are two minor injury units locally:

Camborne and Redruth Community Hospital – includes a Primary Care Centre

01209 318000 – 8am to 10pm every day.

Falmouth Community Hospital

01326 430030 – 8am to 8pm every day. 

 

We appreciate that we are all trying to navigate through these unprecedented times and hope that this will aid better patient care.
