About the Jersey Care Model
Jersey is on an exciting journey towards implementing a new model of care including the build of a new hospital that will transform health and social care provision in Jersey
The overarching aim of the Jersey Care Model (JCM) is to transform health and social care, in order to improve Islanders' physical and mental health and wellbeing. To achieve this, it adopts a person-centred approach whereby care is financially sustainable, safe and accessible, being provided in the places where people need it the most.
