A new Urgent Care Centre at the Cornwall's farthest flung hospital has been made permanent.

Pirate FM has learnt that patient numbers at the West Cornwall in Penzance have doubled since a new twenty-four GP clinic merged with casualty.

Transfers to Treliske have dropped by two thirds.

Graham Webster from Health Initiative Cornwall has called it a good start: "Everybody, a few years ago, thought there was a serious threat to the hospital. We've been able to stop it and conducted this project. We're now making good progress and long may this progress continue.

"We'd still like to see a lot of services moved out of Royal Cornwall Hospital in order to limit the travelling that people have to do from this end of the county. We've made a good start and we're now looking at all the other services that we can safely move down to West Cornwall."
