Visiting Hours

Between 2.30pm to 5.30pm in the afternoon and 6.30pm to 8pm in the evening. We operate a protected mealtime policy on the wards between 12pm and 1pm and 5.30pm and 6.30pm. 

Minor Injuries Unit

The hospital also has a Minor Injury Unit (MIU) open every day between 8am and 10pm. If your injury is not serious, you can get help at an MIU rather than going to A&E, allowing A&E staff to concentrate on people with serious, life-threatening conditions and saving you a potentially long wait. Our MIU staff try to see patients as quickly as possible and generally waiting times are less than in an A&E department.

The hospital's X-Ray department is open Monday to Friday between 9am and 4.45pm.

A range of outpatient clinics are also held on site.

Guild of Friends 

The Guild of Friends help support the Camborne Redruth Community Hospital by receiving donations and ensuring this is used appropriately for patients. This includes purchasing much needed equipment and helping improve the hospital environment. The funds also make it possible for the Friends to ensure patients are not forgotten at special times ie Easter and Christmas when they provide gifts to patients.

They fund raise at the hospital bazaar where they also hold a raffle, and make time to visit patients and staff in order to explain their role and to say “thank you” to the public for their generosity.

The Friends meet each month and talk to staff about any hospital projects they may wish to get involved in and keep abreast of any changes.

It was with the help of our Guild of friends that the MIU was established with it’s “give us a quid” appeal years ago.

Anyone who wishes to join them may contact Juliet Jenkin at julietmjenkin@talktalk.net.
