NHS 111 – making the right choice for urgent healthcare

NHS 111 is a system for urgent – but not emergency – healthcare. This way of accessing urgent care in Cornwall is to make sure everyone stays as safe as possible during the pandemic.

If you need urgent care, visit www.111.nhs.uk/ or phone 111 to find out where you should go and when. You will be directed to the most appropriate treatment. Accessing services in this way will help to prevent long waits and reduce the risk of infection in waiting rooms.

Arrangements have not changed for people with serious or life-threatening illnesses or injuries. Please continue to dial 999 as before.


£1,500 per household to upgrade rural broadband

People in Cornwall whose home or business is not covered by the current Superfast Cornwall programme plans for receiving fibre broadband could be eligible for up to £1,500 towards reliable superfast broadband in the next year, as part of the Government’s Broadband Upgrade Fund.

People can find out if they’re eligible for funds by entering their details on the Broadband Upgrade Fund website and registering their interest. Registration for funding closes on 30 September 2020. 

The Government is urging as many local households and businesses as possible to sign up for Government help in installing superfast broadband. Please share this information with people and businesses in your area so they can register for funding.


Spreading the word about The Cornwall We Want

Could you help Cornwall Council spread the word about The Cornwall We Want? The Council wants to hear from as many people in Cornwall as possible about what they want for Cornwall for future generations.
Only one in ten of Cornwall’s residents want things to go back to the way they were before the coronavirus pandemic. The Council wants to develop a shared vision for the future of Cornwall so that Cornwall’s recovery leads to a ‘better normal’ than before the crisis.
People can join in the discussion online at
letstalk.cornwall.gov.uk or send their views through the post.

The Council wants people to share their views on:

  • Their hopes and fears for the future
  • Their experience of the lockdown
  • Whether the lockdown made them think again about what matters in their life
  • What changes they want to make
  • What the ‘new normal’ to looks like for them, their business or their community
  • What they see as the challenges and opportunities to achieving those aims

Anyone who’s not online can write to the Council at: Cornwall Council -The Cornwall We Want Room 4S New County Hall
Treyew Road Truro  TR1 3AY

Update from Cormac

Cormac Highways & Environment teams are gradually getting back to normal after scaling back their work activities due to government COVID-19 guidelines.

Highways:  initial focus is on the maintenance of the main routes. Surfacing, surface dressing and some site-based programmes started at the beginning of June. They are also keen to take advantage of lower traffic volumes and public footfall in some areas, as this minimises disruption for everyone, particularly local residents and businesses.

They will be carrying out essential surface dressing across the county over the next few months. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation they won’t currently be posting letters to individual households. Signs will be put up well in advance to notify local residents of the need to move parked cars to allow the work to be done without any delays.  Roads often have to be closed to provide enough room for works to be carried out safely.

Verge management: this year, Cormac have reviewed their programmes and have significantly reduced the areas of rural verges cut. Like many councils across the country, they cut highway grass in rural areas for’safety reasons only’, to preserve visibility for road users and to provide a safe space for pedestrians. This allows Cormac to fulfil safety requirements while fully committing to protecting wildlife and the wider environment.

Keeping updated: the highways updates are posted on the Cormac website programming pages so that you can see what’s happening in your area and when.

Staying connected: Cormac wish to ensure that communication line are kept open so that problems can be reported and dealt with. To report a highway or footpath problem (including potholes) please contact the highway services and fault reporting .

Citizens Advice Cornwall  is asking  for your opinion on how to improve  their services in the longer term. Their Chief Executive, Gill Pipkin, said:

“We know the demand for independent, accurate and free advice is going to massively increase after the lockdown and it’s vital that people in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly have somewhere to turn to. That’s why it’s essential we start planning now.”

How You Can Help
Citizens Advice is part of the community and we need your suggestions about how we can reach more people in your area. We can consider running more outreach services, making use of technology to deal with more cases online or via webchat and social media, finding new ways to reach more remote rural areas and making sure people know how to access our services.
