Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust provides community health services to children and young people and mental health and learning disability services to people of all ages across Cornwall. It runs Longreach House in Redruth, and Bodmin Hospital

In 2006 the Commission for Social Care Inspection and the Healthcare Commission mounted a joint investigation into widespread institutional abuse of people with learning difficulties in the Trust.[1]

In August 2014 it was revealed that the Trust was considering a merger with Peninsula Community Health and that the Chief Executive of Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust was also interested in participating.[2]

In January 2018 the trust said it was owed £2.1m by Cornwall Council under the contract for adult community services which it took over in April 2016.[3]

It set up a new unit, Cove Ward at Longreach in Redruth in March 2018 as a fast-track rehabilitation service, and to avoid patients being sent out of the area.[4]
