At St. Michael's Hospital, Hayle, Cornwall, where a maternity unit and a new theatre block have been opened during the past two years, plans are now being made to extend the accommodation of the men's balcony ward and the children's ward.

The Sisters also plan to introduce a time-saving appointments system to the outpatients' clinics.
