STJ-004 The Parish Council support the case for a feasibility study to be undertaken by The St Mawes Hub Group to look at how people in the Parish can be helped if they are ill with Covid 19 but where they are not ill enough to be admitted to hospital, or there are insufficient hospital beds for them. The feasibility study will look at the possibility of a central hospice/isolation centre, which could assist with reducing the spread of the virus, together with other possible solutions. We request that the study be shared with us, as it may be useful for our emergency plan, we also expect the study to review what Cornwall Council and the NHS are currently working on, in this health emergency, to ensure no duplication of effort.
