A ward is closed and staff are suspended at Cornwall's biggest hospital.

An investigation is underway at Treliske after allegations over a patient's care.

Bosses say Wheal Agar is only shut temporarily and the suspensions do not implicate blame, it is just routine while they talk to the staff to find out what has happened.

A spokesperson told Pirate FM:

"We are currently investigating an allegation about a specific patient's care on one of our wards at the Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust.
 
"As a matter of routine we take every concern raised seriously and accordingly in this instance we are exploring the matter fully.  
 
"We can confirm staff have been suspended - this is a neutral act. The ward has been temporarily closed and any new patients will continue to be able to receive care and treatment within our hospitals services."
