Health officials urge Islanders not to delay getting treatment

31 December 2020

​Jersey’s Chief Nurse, Rose Naylor, is urging Islanders to continue to access health services this winter and not to delay getting treatment or making an appointment with their GP.

Health officials have worked hard to ensure that many services are operating as normal at the General Hospital and throughout Health and Community services, with some unavoidable changes due to the extra measures in place to keep people safe during this pandemic.

Chief Nurse, Rose Naylor, said: “We understand that some Islanders may be nervous about coming into our hospital and community buildings for treatment or appointments, but please be assured that we are doing everything we can to protect patients and staff from Covid-19.

“If you have a scheduled appointment or need to see a doctor, please know that the hospital is safe and able to help you. You should not avoid appointments or seeking healthcare support which might lead to further complications down the line.”

Health and Community Services (HCS) have prepared for this winter by:

  • Maintaining as many services as possible in dedicated parts of the Hospital that are apart from those receiving treatment for Covid
  • Introducing rigorous infection prevention and control measures, including enhanced cleaning of wards
  • Establishing a Covid response team to monitor and manage the daily situation in the hospital, which includes reviewing the need for additional staff, services and equipment
  • Ensuring the availability of vital PPE to keep patients and staff safe
