Board Reviews Site Selection for Hospital

Tuesday 10 July 09:45

A new Board is being established to review the evidence that supported the previous States Assembly’s decision to build a new hospital on the site of the existing hospital.

The Chief Minister, Senator John Le Fondré, explained when seeking election that he supported a new hospital, but that more evaluation was needed before proceeding. The Board will consider how Members reached the conclusion that alternative sites, such as Peoples’ Park, St Saviour’s Hospital, and the Waterfront, were less suitable than Gloucester Street.

The Board will be chaired by Connétable Christopher Taylor and will include Ministers, Assistant Ministers, and other members of the Assembly. Its members will aim to complete their work promptly and report to the Chief Minister with their advice in October.

Senator Le Fondré said: “I believe this will be a constructive way to move forward and deliver a new hospital for Islanders. The Board will report in a transparent manner, so we can make sure that this decision, one of our most important in a generation, is the right decision.”

The Chief Minister committed to establishing a number of boards to bring more States Members into decision making. More boards will be established in other policy areas.
