Hospital waiting times published online

17 August 2018

Waiting times for patients at Jersey General Hospital are now available on the States of Jersey website.

Following a pledge by the Health and Social Services Minister, Deputy Richard Renouf, at the first regular sitting of the new States Assembly, information has been collated and will now be updated monthly.

The published data includes both the average wait for a first appointment with the various hospital departments and the average wait for a procedure or operation across the range of specialties in which care is provided for Islanders.

Deputy Renouf said “I want to be open about the pressures facing our hospital services and believe strongly in regularly publishing information on average waiting times.

“There are considerable variations in the average times an Islander is likely to have to wait for their appointment or procedure but it is important to say that urgent cases are always prioritised. I and my colleagues in the Department are working to reduce delays and improve patients’ experience of hospital services.”

Rob Sainsbury, Group Managing Director for Health and Community Services, said “Some of the specialties with the longest waits have particular challenges, however we are working closely with the staff concerned to identify the issues involved and bring down the waiting times.”

The waiting times will be updated by the first working day of each month, one month in arrears.
