Rally - Tuesday 5th October 21

A big thank you to everyone that attended the rally today. Please add your support to scrutiny's amendment by emailing your local states member asking them to vote for Senator Kristina Moore's amendment to reduce the cost to a manageable level of £550 million. The Friends have always supported the Island’s need for a new hospital.

A new hospital with the right facilities, built in the right location and at the right cost. The Assembly’s vote on P.80 is perhaps the last chance to achieve these objectives. If you are like minded, you too can engage in the debate. Please write to our Connetables, Deputies and Senators and ask them to support P.80 Amendment.

Friends of Our New Hospital, CTV interview with Stephen Regal

The hospital scrutiny panel said, "at the outset of the Our Hospital Outline Business Case and Funding Review this Panel asked the public a very simple question: whether a budget of £804 million is appropriate for a new hospital for Jersey. The overwhelming majority of the over 130 public submissions to our call for evidence are clear that they do not believe that £804 million is an appropriate sum." (P.80/2021): SECOND AMENDMENT

Graham Bisson speaking from personal experience 7th July 2021 hospital and care in Jersey

A word about us, We are a small group of people who have been carefully following the information concerning the building of a hospital for the last five years. And that is the reason why we have organised this open meeting, to inform you the public of our findings and to understand why we are worried about the future of our island's health. I know many of you are fed up and are saying "just get on with it." We agree. We are not trying to hold things up. We are trying to get the correct hospital, in the correct place, with the correct things in it.  >Read the full conference proceedings here

Hospital - Outline Business case

On 13 May 2019, the Chief Minister announced proposals to establish an entirely new project ‘Our  Hospital’ to deliver a new hospital by 2026. The purpose of this Outline Business Case (“OBC”) is to set out the case for a new hospital to be built to replace the existing Jersey General Hospital and builds on the Strategic Outline Case (“SOC”) which was approved in November 2020.

The subsequent chapters set out this case in considerable detail but before going into the detail of the Outline Business Case, it is first important to provide a recap of how this stage has been reached and the project approvals which have already been obtained.

What is the review about? P.80/2021

Scrutiny - Our Hospital Project Outline Business Case and Funding Review

The Future Hospital Review Panel has committed to undertake a review of the Our Hospital Outline Business Case (OBC) and the accompanying proposition p.80/2021 to fund the £804 million project. The review is part of the Panel’s ongoing scrutiny of the Our Hospital Project which, later in 2021, may include a review of the planning application associated with the site.

In November 2020, Overdale was approved by the States Assembly as the preferred site for the new hospital (P.123/2020). Since that date the Council of Ministers brought forward P.167/2020 Our Hospital, Preferred Access Route, which was approved by the States Assembly in early February 2021. The site was approved with a budget envelope of £804 million. It is anticipated planning for the site and the access route will be submitted in November 2021 with approval expected within six months from submission. >Have your say contact Scrutiny
