Stratton Minor Injuries Unit has been under threat and its future is far from certain but the good news is that overnight services will continue for now.
Stratton Community Treatment Service was introduced as a pilot on 23rd August, 2019, after strong local feeling led to a rethink. The service is provided by Kernow Health CIC, on behalf of Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. The service operates between 10 pm and 8 am, treating people who book via 111 or who walk in for minor injuries and illness.
At the end of last month, the Trust reviewed an internal evaluation of the service and agreed to extend the pilot for a further 6 months.
Scott Mann MP said:
“I recently met with Julie Dawson and put forward the strong desire that my constituents in the Bude area have for Stratton to be used to its full potential, so I am extremely pleased that they have listened and the trial of the overnight service has been extended by six months.”
