'Mistake' Misses Hospitals Off Health Map
7:02am 20th November 2013
Cornish health bosses have left their own hospitals off a map.
Peninsula Community Health is scrapping the copies after missing out sites in Fowey, Penzance and St Ives.
They insist it does not mean services are set to be scaled back - although there is a consultation into the future of Poltair hospital.
In a statement officials said: "The PCH Health & Care Charitable Funds leaflet was printed recently though has not been widely distributed. The leaflet contains a map of Cornwall and Isles of Scilly including which was intended as an indicator of the geographical spread of PCH services (not hospitals specifically).
"This map was a generic graphic and does not list Penzance, Fowey or St Ives. These non-deliberate omissions have absolutely no connection with current or planned provision of services or beds in those areas.
"As it has clearly led to some concern, we have taken the feedback on board and will not distribute this version of the leaflet as planned but will re-print the map to incorporate Fowey, St Ives and Penzance to avoid any further confusion."
Health campaigners say they are concerned at what has happened.7:02am 20th November 2013
