Our Mission Statement

Welcome, Friends of Our New Hospital was started by the late Sir Nigel Broomfield. We are a group of passionate and dedicated people who for the last three years have been researching and studying all the different aspects of the new General Hospital that the island desperately needs.

Our objective is to exchange information and to advance suggestions regarding the development of the Island’s Health facilities. We continue to advance the view that Jersey needs a new Hospital now including all the existing facilities and specialists, plus mental health care and additional facilities to deliver a Health system fit for the 21st century Jersey. With focus we believe with proper planning a new Hospital can be delivered by 2026.

We act as an independent source of information, commentary and advice on Island Health Care and, in particular, the ‘Our Hospital’ project, acting as a public scrutiny group. We seek to mobilise public opinion in order to encourage change, if and when necessary, on behalf of the people and taxpayers of Jersey. 

Friends of Our New Hospital aims to lobby the government of Jersey while also acting as an "independent and objective source of information" on the project.
