Patients in Bude may not have to face a hundred mile round trip for treatment.

Stratton Community Hospital has reopened on Monday after a massive refurbishment.

Locals raised more than half a million pounds to help fund improvements, alongside the PCT.  

Candy Baker, chairperson of the League of Friends of Stratton Hospital, said: "I am thrilled to bits. I never thought I would see it in my lifetime. The people in the community have been amazingly generous, enabling us to now have the money to refurbish the inside.

"We are possibly one of the furthermost community hospitals. Our people really do have to travel for very simple things sometimes, to the acute hospitals. When we're talking about fifty or sixty miles each way, that isn't a joke."

Patients will now be able to access better out-patient and X-ray facilities, improvements to its minor injuries unit and a new in-patient ward.

The new building also offers changes to palliative care, with purpose built suites to support terminally ill patients and their families.
