Urgent care waiting times

Non-urgent advice: Do you need urgent NHS care in Cornwall? Contact NHS 111.

To help you find the right service and the nearest and quickest place to go, just contact NHS 111 by phone or online at any time of day or night, to find out where you should go and when.

If needed, expert clinicians will arrange for you to be seen at the Emergency Department (ED) or at our range of other treatment units. Please don’t just turn up at the Emergency Department, as you may be directed elsewhere or have to wait longer.

We want to help you get the right treatment, more quickly – and probably closer to home as well.

Emergency Departments in our main acute hospitals in Truro, Plymouth and Barnstaple are open 24 hours for serious life and limb-threatening injury or illness only.
