The company that runs Cornwall's community hospitals says it is confident plans to recruit new nurses will stop more beds shutting.

Peninsula Community Health has appointed a new Chief Exec.

Steve Jenkin takes over in the summer.

It comes after a string of temporary closures at Penzance and Falmouth.

Chairman Michael Williams said: "None of us can see the circumstances that we might meet in the future, but what I can say is what our staffing plan is designed to do is to make sure that we avoid any unmanaged temporary closures.

"People need to be perhaps less focussed on the simple question of the number of hospital beds as opposed to how are they used and against a primary objective of trying to treat and keep people at home."
