Cornwall's biggest hospital reveals performance concerns, because of a big rise in emergency admissions.

Figures show January was the busiest month for two years at Treliske.

A report went before the board meeting on Thursday.

RCHT Medical Director, Dr Rob Parry said:
 
"We are very sorry that some patients have experienced delays in admission or postponement of planned surgery in recent weeks.
 
"Where a patient is in need of an operation following certain types of fracture it is normal for there to be a few days during which it is necessary for swelling to be allowed to reduce before surgery can go ahead.  Patients will usually return to hospital within 7 days although admission may depend on the number and urgency of other cases, or the need for a particular specialist surgeon.  Patients should be kept informed during this time and we apologise for any instance where this has not happened.
 
"Together with our health and social care partners we are prioritising the need to work together to improve patient flow, to ensure patients receive their care and treatment in the setting most appropriate to their needs."
