Statement: Our Hospital Debate

Dec 14, 2022

Following the decision of the States Assembly on P.109/2022 brought by Deputy Farnham, the Chief Minister, Deputy Kristina Moore; Minister for Infrastructure, Deputy Tom Binet; Minister for Health and Social Services, Deputy Karen Wilson; and Minister for Treasury and Resources, Deputy Ian Gorst have approved the following joint statement:

“We welcome the decision of the States Assembly to reject Deputy Farnham’s proposal to delay the implementation of the findings of the Our Hospital Review which would have tied the hands of the project team. 

“We are pleased that the majority of the States Assembly agrees that pursuing a solution that is no longer affordable or achievable would be unwise.

“We will now work at pace with health and care workers to develop our clinical service model and provide the Assembly with the information they seek on the detailed costs and workforce requirements of the multi-site option in line with the findings of the Review.

“Our overarching objective remains to deliver fit-for-purpose, clinically and operationally safe, high-quality, and cost-effective healthcare facilities at a suitable scale and value for Jersey. We are committed to starting the new developments within the term of this Government and to ensuring that the Island benefits from a stable and happy workforce in this critical area of the public service.”
