The flagship Truro Health Park is located on the site of the former City Hospital on Infirmary Hill and houses 300 staff and will treat around 4,000 patients per week.
The facility provides purpose-built, state-of-the art facilities, bringing together a range of health and community services under one roof, many of them re-located from cramped, out-dated and inappropriate accommodation.
The co-location of the two Truro GP surgeries in one new building had been a local NHS priority for many years and the facility also brings together community services previously provided in The Leats, and community staff who were scattered across the city. By uniting all of these community services into one building, improved communication, easier patient access and the space to provide the existing and enhanced future services that are required can be provided.
The provision of this new state of the art facility through LIFT is consistent with the PCT’s strategic review and national policy guidelines, and is a positive step forward in providing enhanced health and social care facilities for the Truro community.
Services provided at the Health Park include:
• GP services
• a minor operating theatre
• family planning
• health promotion
• speech and language therapy
• district nurses
• health visitors
• dental service
Building work began in March 2008 and the centre opened to the first patients on 7th June 2010.
