Cornwall and Isles of Scilly illness website launched

A website has been launched for people with long-term illnesses in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

The NHS site, Self Care in Cornwall, provides support and information about conditions including Parkinson's.

Dave Tyas from the NHS said having a single point of contact created "the best possible opportunity" of serving the community.

The site also provides information and medical updates for healthcare professionals.

Mr Tyas said: "Self Care in Cornwall unites the existing information available through NHS Choices with local community-based information on self-care support. "
