Calls To Reopen Cornish Hospital Beds
2:43pm 26th March 2013
There are urgent calls to reopen beds which were shut at a Cornish hospital.
St Ives MP says closures at Poltair Hospital in Penzance are making 'bed-blocking' worse, and putting patients' safety at risk.
Andrew George is asking health ministers to take action as soon as possible.
He said: "We can't carry on like this. Health chiefs tells us that we have too many beds. Yet most of the problems are caused by having too few.
"Excess bed pressure risks compromising patient safety. It's time that this critically important matter was properly reviewed.
"We cannot wait until sometime after the new Cornwall Council has bedded itself in after fresh elections in May."
