A community-based health service provider will reprint a map outlining the services it provides across Cornwall after it distributed copies which but did not list three major towns.
Peninsula Community Health, which provides community-based health services to adults in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, distributed a leaflet containing a map of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly which indicated the geographical spread of PCH services across the area (not hospitals specifically).
But residents in Penzance, Fowey and St Ives were left confused and concerned as to whether services in their areas would remain when the map on the PCH Health & Care Charitable Funds leaflet did not list the three towns.
The not-for-profit community interest company, which became the service provider in October 2011, said the the “generic graphic” had not been widely distributed and the “non-deliberate omissions” had “absolutely no connection” with current or planned provision of services or beds in the areas.
It has now moved to reprint a new map to incorporate all three towns to “avoid further confusion”.
A Peninsula Community Health spokesperson said: “As it has clearly led to some concern, we have taken the feedback on board and will not distribute this version of the leaflet as planned but will re-print the map to incorporate Fowey, St Ives and Penzance to avoid any further confusion.”
