Deputy Tom Binet explains the reasoning behind the decision to change direction of the new hospital and its plans. The £804.5m hospital at Overdale is now officially off the table because the island can no longer afford it, the Infrastructure Minister has said. The Government has said that the project as previously envisaged, and given planning permission for, is no longer viable and will not be built.
17th May 2022 - Deputy John Young approved the scheme on Tuesday, interim chair Peter Funk gave his views on the decision with this interview on ITV explaining the reasons why the new hospital project is in the wrong place and at the wrong price.
Senator Steve Pallet - 15th January 2022
In May 2020 the Samarès Ward rehabilitation centre was closed to offer a rehabilitation centre for recovering Covid patients coming off ventilators in the Nightingale Ward of the General Hospital. Later,
the reason given was that there is no piped oxygen available in the Samarès Ward. However, in the government’s financial report for FY
2020 Samarès Ward’s closure was shown as a £1.8 million HCS cost saving. Read More on Proposition p.115-2021 - 10 Dec 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.

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
