Weekend death rates at Cornwall's biggest hospital are falling.

Pirate FM told you earlier this year how stats at Treliske were some of the worst in the UK.

Now a report is praising hospital bosses for work to make sure patients get the same care no matter what day of the week it is.

But, we are still more likely to die if we go in on a Saturday or Sunday.

Emergency consultant Dr Andy Virr told Pirate FM: "We're certainly not wanting to be complacent here at the Royal Cornwall Hospital. We have an ongoing review of the mortality of our patients so we need to make sure that people are guarantees the right care at the right time irrespective of when they come."

He said he was concerned that some people might be staying away at weekends because of the difference in rates: "That's a reputation we don't want to have and if it is an emergency we want patients to come on that day and we need to make sure that the hospital is ready to receive them and that's why we're working hard on getting that right."
