St Austell Community Hospital

This page has helpful information if your GP surgery has referred you to attend an appointment at the St Austell primary care hub.

Non-urgent advice: Note

Please do not go to the hub unless you have been given an appointment by your GP surgery.

Where is my appointment?

The primary care hub is at St Austell Community Hospital (also known as Penrice), Porthpean Road, St Austell, PL26 6AA.

  • When you arrive at the hospital, enter through the main entrance.
  • Check in at the main reception desk. You will be directed to wait at the dedicated waiting area.
  • You will then be called in to be seen in either Room 1 or Room 2.

If you are arriving by car

You can park for free in the main car park.

You should arrive 10 minutes before your appointment to give you time to park and arrive at your appointment.

Do you need to cancel your appointment?

Please contact your GP surgery to cancel your appointment. This will make sure your appointment time can be used by someone else.

What is a primary care hub?

Brand-new primary care hubs have been set up to enable you to see a health professional more quickly.

The hubs are offering additional appointments for people with minor illness symptoms, and the staff who work in them include advanced practitioners and GPs. 

The hubs are conveniently located across Cornwall, providing more health and care services locally.
