Penwith community services review events

There’s a chance to find out more about the work to review community services in Penwith by attending one of three drop-in sessions during the coming month.

The NHS, Cornwall Council and partner organisations are looking at the local needs and community service provision in the Penwith area, and what this means for the future of Edward Hain Community Hospital in St Ives.

During the past 18 months, they have been working with people who live and work in the area to understand what health and care services are needed in the community as part of the work to create a health and care system that’s fit for the 21st century, and to put people and their needs at the heart of these plans. What they have said has been used to develop plans on how health, care and community services should respond to the health and care needs of people in Penwith.

As part of this ongoing engagement, three drop-in sessions have been organised for anyone who has not had the opportunity to attend one of the workshops, but would like to find out more about the work, share their thoughts, and have any questions answered.

The sessions will take place from 6.30pm to 8.30pm and people are welcome to drop in at any time during those hours at:

  • Thursday 12 September – St Ives Leisure Centre, Trenwith, The Burrows, St Ives TR26 1HB
  • Tuesday 17 September – The Knut, rear of 1-4 Market Street, St Just, TR19 7HX
  • Thursday 3 October – The Alverne Room, St Johns Hall, Penalverne Drive, Penzance TR18 2QZ.

Please note these events are drop-in sessions, and not public meetings.
