Edward Hain Community Hospital – NHS Kernow Need Your Views

16th October 2020 in Council News

For the last 18 months, NHS Kernow Clinical Commissioning Group have been working together with people in St Ives and Penwith to understand the needs of local people and to explore the role of the Edward Hain Community Hospital to provide the right health and care support.

This work, led by NHS Kernow,  in partnership with community stakeholders, has now concluded. Research has concluded that the hospital is no longer able to provide health and care, including its podiatry and mental health clinics.

You can access the full engagement report on their website.


NHS Kernow want to make sure that everyone has had a chance to get involved and share their views about how it could affect people if Edward Hain community hospital was not available, and what might help with any concerns people have. They want to do this before NHS Kernow’s Governing Body makes a formal decision about the future of the hospital.

There are lots of ways you can get involved:
