The NHS is advising anyone living or visiting St Ives, Falmouth, Newquay and the surrounding areas affected by next week’s G7 summit to think ahead and to make sure they know how to get help, if needed.
If you need urgent health advice, please call your own GP first. If you’re visiting Cornwall, please call the GP where you are registered and not the one closest to where you are staying. When they’re closed, please call 111 or visit Please do not turn up at a minor injuries unit (MIU), or urgent treatment centre (UTC) without contacting 111 first.
If after contacting 111, you need to attend an MIU or UTC, you will be given details of where to go. Pharmacies are also open and can provide advice and treatment for minor ailments such as bites and burns, and emergency medication. Some are also open late at night.

Free covid testing for everyone

Anyone in Cornwall can now get free twice-weekly Covid-19 tests.

  1. Not everyone has been offered the vaccine yet
