We are aware of the impact of new developments on health infrastructure. As Langarth will be phased over 20 to 25 years this means that there will not be a sudden increase in people needing hospital treatment, however we recognise the importance of ensuring that new health facilities are in place at the start of the scheme.
We are working with:
- NHS Kernow.
- The Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust.
To minimise the impact of the development on the acute hospital and emergency services.
The Truro primary care practices are looking at options for increasing provision. These include a new medical centre on the site. They are also considering alternative methods for delivering primary and community based services.
