Coordinates: The Royal Cornwall Hospital, formerly and still commonly known as Treliske Hospital, is a medium-sized teaching hospital in Treliske, on the outskirts of Truro, Cornwall, England. The hospital is used for clinical training of medical students from the Peninsula Medical School, which is maintained by the University of Plymouth and the University of Exeter.
The £27 million Trelawny Wing was officially opened in 1998. It remains the largest single investment in health care in Cornwall. The work, which took six years of planning and development, marks the completion of the District General Hospital for Cornwall. The wing ensures facilities in Cornwall are equal to those found in any of the other District General Hospitals in the country.
The Royal Cornwall Hospital was one of 17 hospitals across the UK named as failing to provide enough staff “to keep people safe and meet their health and welfare needs” by the Care Quality Commission in January 2013.
