A Cornish hospice says new facilities will care for more terminally ill patients and their families closer to home.

Another outpatient unit and extra beds are open at St Julia's near Hayle.

Locals raised three hundred thousand pounds to help build it.

Doctor Deborah Stevens said, "Previously we've been operating eight beds for a 160,000 population and we knew there were some patients who couldn't get in who needed either specialist input for a few days or to look after them if they really were at the end of their lives.

"We know that if we can have patients comfortable and unstressed that makes the situation more bearable for their families but we also know, from the patients' point of view, they feel safe and secure and well looked after here. There's not the fear they're being a burden on their family."
