As part of the process of delivering a new hospital for Jersey, the Government wants to hear Islanders’ views.
To help provide a representative voice from a wide cross-section of the community, the Our Hospital project is setting up a Citizens’ Panel as part of its engagement process.
Responsibilities of the panel
The Panel's role is to make sure that the views of Islanders are taken into account by the project when it looks at where the new hospital might be built.
The panel will be asked to reach a consensus view on the criteria that the Our Hospital Project Team should use to determine where the new hospital could be built – although the panel will not be asked to give its view about where that location should be.
It is expected to meet four of five times over a six to eight-week period, with the potential to be asked to reconvene to provide further feedback as the project progresses.
Become a member of the Our Hospital Citizens' Panel
The Citizens’ Panel should be impartial and a representative group of Islanders. Therefore, any applicant who is involved in any related campaign group or has previously taken a public position about this project, or the previous Future Hospital project, will not qualify to join the Panel. However, any applicants who do not qualify to become part of the Panel will be invited, along with the public, to make submissions to the Panel.
Anyone interested in becoming a member of the Our Hospital Citizens’ Panel can apply by clicking the link below or by picking up an application form from any parish hall and returning it, once completed, to the Government offices in Broad Street.
The closing date for applications is Friday 29th November.
