Board backs Poltair Hospital closure option

- From the section Cornwall
Proposals to close Poltair Hospital in Penzance have been backed by the Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust (RCHT) board.
Poltair staff see up to 50 outpatients a day, but inpatient services ended in 2012 following staff shortages.
RCHT managers want outpatient clinics and staff moved to West Cornwall Hospital and other sites in Penzance to "integrate" services.
A public consultation is being carried out until February and a final decision is due later this year.
