澤西島新的單一地點醫院無法負擔--首席部長

首席部長說,由於經濟環境的原因,正在考慮將澤西島的新醫院設施跨越三個地點的建議。

這是在對Overdale單一地點的計劃進行審查後發現它不再是可負擔的。

它說Gloucester街的醫院應該被翻新,並在Kensington Place和Overdale增加設施。

包括醫務人員在內的批評者說,在對該計劃作出決定方面不應該有任何拖延。

由基礎設施部長Tom Binet領導的審查說,在Overdale的單一地點將比政府批准的8.045億英鎊的資金多花費7000萬到1.15億英鎊。

首席部長Kristina Moore告訴與會人員。"我們發現,上屆議會同意的解決方案根本無法負擔,在目前的經濟環境下尤其如此。"

"他說:"你們能不能不要把醫院和員工當作政治足球,繼續執行民主商定的計劃,不要再拖延和浪費金錢了。

同時,之前負責該項目的林登-法納姆議員說,他希望部長們公布在多個地點建設的成本和醫療影響的直接比較,而不是只在Overdale建設。

他說,他希望確保州政府在確定新的建議在臨床和財務上都更好之前,不要 "放棄 "以前批准的計劃。


Proposals to have Jersey's new hospital facilities across three sites are being considered because of the economic climate, the chief minister has said.

It comes after a review into plans for a single site at Overdale found it was no longer affordable.

It said Gloucester Street's hospital should be renovated, with facilities added at Kensington Place and Overdale.

Critics, including medical staff, have said there should be no delays in coming to a decision on the plans.

The review, led by Minister for Infrastructure Tom Binet, said a single site at Overdale would cost between £70m and £115m more than the £804.5m funding approved by the government.

Chief Minister Kristina Moore told those attending: "We found that the solution that was agreed by the previous assembly is simply not affordable, and particularly not so in this current economic climate."

"Can you stop using the hospital and staff as a political football, and continue with the democratically-agreed plan without further delay and wasting money," he said.

Meanwhile, Deputy Lyndon Farnham, who was previously responsible for the project, said he wanted ministers to publish direct comparisons of the costs and medical implications of building across multiple sites, compared to building just at Overdale.

He said he wanted to sure the States did not "abandon" previously approved plans until it was certain the new proposals were better, both clinically and financially.
