  • It is important people get the right care, in the right place, at the right time. Did you know that your pharmacist can treat allergies, minor cuts, bruises and skin conditions? You can also visit the Walk-in centre for the treatment of cuts, bruises, minor infections, stomach upsets, strains and skin complaints without an appointment.

Living Well: Pioneer for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly

Read all about our pioneering work to help people live the lives they want to live.

NHS Kernow is the clinical commissioning group for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. 

Our job is to buy health services for the population of the county and islands including hospitals, mental health services, children's services and community services. Our annual budget is around £700 million a year.

We formally took over this function on April 1, 2013 from Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Primary Care Trust, when it was abolished. Public Health is now the responsibility of Cornwall Council or the Council of the Isles of Scilly while GPs, dentists, pharmacies and optometrists are commissioned by NHS England.

You can find out more about our work throughout this website. A good place to start is by reading the welcome message from our Chairman, Dr Colin Philip.
