Existing capacity is due to be exceeded in some services as early as December 2011, the elderly population is rising disproportionately and almost 50% of the medical workforce is due to retire in the next 10 years.

Decisions on which path to take are needed now, and those decisions will have a major bearing on how health and social care is provided, organised, and funded for the population of Jersey for the next several decades.
KPMG has, over 5 months, worked with Ministers and officers of the States of Jersey, and particularly of the Health and Social Services Department, with staff, stakeholders and other interested parties across health and social care and in related areas and services. A robust approach has been adopted, with the work developed by a joint KPMG / States of Jersey team, as outlined in Appendix 1.
Our brief has been to assess current and future needs and identify a model of health and social care services for Jersey. This report is the output of that work.
