It provides services to a total patient population of approximately 168,000 ranging from larger practices serving approximately 30,000, to smaller practices with around 3000 patient population.  It is served by several community hospitals including Helston and Camborne Redruth, and the acute hospital both in Truro and West Cornwall.  Investment in primary care in Cornwall is higher than many other systems, and across Cornwall we have one of the highest numbers of dispensing practices in the country.
