Hospitals get high ratings for patient care
Community hospitals in Cornwall have been rated highly following inspections on cleanliness, food and privacy and dignity.
Patient Environment Action Team assessments are carried out every year on in-patient healthcare sites in England that have more than ten beds.
The inspections act as a benchmark to ensure improvements are made in essential aspects of patient care.
All 14 community hospitals in the county, which are run by Peninsula Community Health, received either "good" or "excellent" ratings in all categories.
