Secretary of State visits Camborne and Redruth Community Hospital

The Rt Hon George Eustice MP visits his local hospital, after major refurbishment works.

Camborne and Redruth MP and Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, the Rt Hon George Eustice has welcomed the news of the completion of refurbishment works to the Lamorna Ward and Minor Injuries Unit at Camborne and Redruth Community Hospital.

The project, devised and delivered by Cornwall Partnership Foundation Trust (CPFT) and the site’s landlord, NHS Property Services (NHSPS) has seen a major overhaul of the 18-bed inpatient ward’s interior, including upgrades to electric and bed head services, the laying of new floor coverings and the redecoration of the interior. The £5.6 million project is aimed at providing a modern and fit for purpose facility that enables hard working clinicians to deliver excellent patient care.

On his visit to Lamorna Ward, Mr Eustice was shown the result of the works, and was introduced to its matron, Sue Greenwood MBE, who has been a major driving force behind delivering the project. He also met with representatives from the project partners, James Wakeham (NHSPS), Debbie Richards (CPFT) and Margaret Schwarz (CPFT).

The new and much-improved unit opened its doors to the community in October, and is currently being put to good use by the community.
