COVID-19 community response

As a health and care system, we are aiming to treat people at, or close to, the place they call home. We want to reduce the spread of coronavirus and work together to minimise harm.

We know that more people will need support from health and care services during the pandemic. Our colleagues may also be off work. We are recruiting colleagues into caring, nursing, admin and medical roles maximise the capacity of our workforce. These pages explain more about how we will work together across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly during the COVID-19 pandemic.
