The £2m Penntorr Health project was developed in partnership with NHS Kernow, Peninsula Community Health and Community Health Partnerships and houses the Rame Group Practice surgeries previously at Antony Road and St James Road and the Peninsula Community Health Community Clinic at Hooper Street to all be housed under one roof.
The project’s initial conception was the result of a wide-ranging service review and public engagement exercise which refreshed the local estate strategy and identified the need to create a new health care facility.
Services available on site include a GP practice, district nursing and health visitors, speech therapy, an Ambulance Trust dispatch room, pharmacy and minor surgery unit as well as a wealth of standard, training and enhanced medical services.
Relocated services previously based at Hooper Street, Torpoint, which have moved their clinics and groups to Penntorr Health are:
- MSK / physiotherapy
- District nurses/community nurses
- Speech and language therapy (adults)
- RCHT development/hearing assessments
- Regional hearing services
- RCHT hearing assessment clinic
- Torpoint Gaspers
