North Cornwall GP locality
The north Cornwall GP locality stretches from Bodmin to Port Isaac and up to Bude.
The locality has nine GP practices with a registered population of approximately 65,000 patients. The area is rural with significant distances for patients to travel to the main acute hospitals in Truro, Plymouth and Barnstable. The geography also provides challenges in accessing outpatient services, x-ray and travel times for urgent visits out of hours and emergency vehicles.
