Public Health Law Consultation launched

15 June 2021

Islanders are invited to give their feedback on proposals for the development of a new Public Health Law which will replace the current law, Loi (1934) sur la Santé Publique.


The online consultation, which has launched today, describes proposals related to the possible future scope and function of a new law and how it may be used to positively impact improvements to public health in the Island.


The consultation outlines how the law could be used to:


  • better respond to public health risks from both long-term conditions such as diabetes and heart disease, and outbreaks of infectious diseases such as tuberculosis
  • prepare for and manage future epidemics or pandemics
  • help address health inequalities
  • influence wider social factors affecting health, such as housing and education


The Minister for Health and Social Services, Deputy Richard Renouf, said: "This consultation describes the role law can have in helping to address current and future public health challenges. 


"It's an opportunity for people to offer their thoughts and opinions on proposals which aim to modernise Jersey's approach to public health and better enable services to protect and improve the quality of life of Islanders.


"Good health is something we all value and it is one of this Government's strategic priorities to improve Islanders' wellbeing and mental and physical health. We know that the good health of ourselves and others contributes to a happy, thriving, and prosperous community."

Islanders can offer their feedback up until Friday, 30 July 2021.
