£291m hospital to be built in Cornwall

A new hospital for women and children costing around £291m is set to be built in Cornwall.

The Royal Cornwall Hospital Trust (RCHT) has said it will be completed by 2028 and located on its site in Truro.

It will bring together maternity, neonatal, paediatric, and obstetric and gynaecology services in one building and also become the new main entrance for the Royal Cornwall Hospital.

The project is part of the national New Hospital Programme.

The plans will be shown at the Royal Cornwall Show this week and at other community events in the coming months.
