Leaflets And Meetings To Explain Jersey Care Model

Leaflets explaining the government's plans to reform healthcare are being sent to homes across the island this week.

The proposed Jersey Care Model involves moving some services into the community, to free up the hospital to focus on specialist and emergency care.

The project - developed by Health and Community Services along with clinicians, GPs, dentists and pharmacists - was unveiled last month.

A leaflet giving more details is being delivered to 46,700 households over the next few days.  It has been translated into Polish and Portuguese and can also be read online.

In addition, a series of public meetings are taking place in every parish to explain the plans.

They roadshow starts at St Martin's Public Hall on 28th November.

"I'd urge all islanders to attend one of these meetings so they can learn first-hand the ambitious changes we hope to make in health and social care.  With our growing, ageing population we need to transform health and social care, so we can continue to provide the high-quality care that islanders rightly expect."  - Health Minister, Deputy Richard Renouf
