Falmouth Hospital 1

Falmouth hospital offers a number of inpatient beds. There is also an X-Ray department open Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm and a Day Hospital which hosts various clinics and other treatments. 

The out patient clinics are mostly carried out in the neighbouring health clinic, which is located behind the hospital.  Your appointment letter will state any requirements but if you have any further queries please contact hospital outpatients and general enquires call 01326 430060.

As there are no shop facilities inpatients are advised to bring toiletries, change of clothes, foot wear, medicines and books/magazines.  We recommend that patients do not bring in more than £10 in cash.

Visiting Hours

Visiting hours are from 2.30pm to 4.30pm and 6.30pm to 8pm, protected mealtimes are between 4.30pm and 6pm.

Minor Injuries Unit

The hospital has a Minor Injury Unit which is open every day between 8am and 8pm. For more information call 01326 430030. Our MIU staff try to see patients as quickly as possible and generally waiting times are less than in an A&E department. If your injury is not serious, you can get help at an MIU rather than going to A&E, allowing A&E staff to concentrate on people with serious, life-threatening conditions and saving you a potentially long wait.
