Steve Double MP statement on NHS confirmation that St Austell and Newquay MIUs are protected under STP report

“I am delighted to get written confirmation from the NHS, in their report published earlier this week, that the minor injury units in St Austell and Newquay will be protected under plans for Urgent Treatment Centres.”

Their report categorically states that:

‘None of these services will close to fund or staff the new urgent treatment centres.’

“This confirms what the NHS have been telling us all along. I hope it will provide further reassurance to patients and staff, contrary to the claims of other scaremongering political parties, that our vital MIUs are being safeguarded for all.”
