A new, modern hospital for Jersey

Find Out More

A team of clinicians, architects, planners, engineers and builders has been working on plans for a new, modern general hospital for Jersey on the existing site, Westaway Court and Kensington Place for nearly two years.

The planned new hospital is designed to be able to expand according to need and to provide services for Island residents to 2065.

If the hospital is given the go ahead, some areas will be operational in four years and the full hospital clinical facility will be completed in 2024.

Outline plans were submitted to planning officers in April 2018 and examined in depth at a recent public inquiry. The inspector’s report and recommendations will be sent to the Minister for the Environment who will make a final decision on the plans – expected to be the middle to end of October 2018.

The selection process for the current site has been independently assessed and assured. The location, the budget and the method of funding for a new hospital for Jersey on the site of the existing General Hospital have all been approved by the States Assembly.
