Remember the post on the different takes between Andrew George, Liberal Democrat MP for St Ives, and Ann James of the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Primary Care Trust (CIOSPCT) on trusts’ intentions about the future of West Cornwall hospital at Penzance?

The CIOSPCT and the Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust have now published their plans for West Cornwall hospital: they include an A and E department led by a doctor not a nurse, the continuation of a high dependency unit, a CT scanner in early 2008, more outpatient services, and new specialist sugeons. All of this is good news for people in west Cornwall.

Now we know who is right in the dispute. Game, set, and match to Ann James.
