Community Health Services for Cornwall, Nov 2015

17th November 2015
We are incredibly relieved to receive the news this morning that our Adult Community Health Services are to be reintegrated into existing Cornish NHS organisations – RCHT, CPFT and Kernow Health CIC.  The danger that the tendering process might have led to a private company taking over the running of our community health services had caused us much anxiety, and led to a growing campaign against the privatisation and disintegration of the NHS.  So we welcome the decision taken by Kernow CCG, which shows us that common sense has prevailed. We look forward to supporting the preferred bidder/consortium as they put their best efforts into integrating health care in our county which will benefit all patients.
