Newquay Minor Injuries Unit saved
A plan to close a minor injuries unit overnight has been dropped following complaints from local people.

The Central Cornwall Primary Care Trust is to hold two public consultations to find out what people would like to see happen at the unit at Newquay Hospital.

It says that on average only two patients a night are treated at the unit which was felt to be uneconomical.

The unit is now likely to stay open on Fridays and Saturdays in the summer and during Bank Holiday weekends.

Those unable to attend the meetings can fill in a questionnaire about the unit's future.
