The public will be able to ask questions about proposals of the future use of Poltair Community Hospital in Penzance during December and January.
No decision have been made over the future of a Community Hospital in West Cornwall.
But, we now have until February to decide and tell NHS Kernow and Peninsula Community Health our thoughts on Poltair hospital and how services may be provided in the future.
People will have the opportunity to hear about the consultation options and to ask any questions.
Wednesday, 11 December, a public meeting will be held at St John's Hall, Alverton, Penzance, TR18 2QR, from 6 to 7.30pm.
There will also be three drop-in sessions for people to talk to staff from NHS Kernow and Peninsula Community Health.
All three drop-in sessions take place from 4 to 8pm.
Consultation packs will be available from 9 December from NHS Kernow; GP practices in west Cornwall; libraries; council one-stop shops; West Cornwall Hospital and online at www.kernowccg.nhs.uk/poltair
The options that people will be asked to consider have been drawn up with the help of patients, doctors, nurses, councillors and patient representatives to meet the needs of the community.
