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 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 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
