We will confirm how you can line one’s purse, by providing first class care to those who take a turn for the worse. BUT you’ll be required to immerse…in all things Cornwall.

Who are Kernow Health CIC

We are a Community Interest Company, supporting General Practice and the delivery of Primary Care Services at scale throughout Cornwall.

In addition to the above, we actively recruit for a plethora of roles across a range PCN’s, which means we have an extremely appealing portfolio of employment options for GPN’s to explore. Ultimately, Cornwall is one of, if not the most beautiful location in the UK, which makes for a great playground to explore when you are not treating patients.

North and East Cornwall offers a mix of beaches such as Bude and Port Isaac, market towns in Launceston and Callington, coastal harbours in Fowey, Looe, and Padstow, and rural landscape in Bodmin Moor and the Camel Estuary.
