The Chief Minister, Deputy Kristina Moore, announced major new Government
initiatives today as she set out her vision for Jersey beyond the Council of Ministers’
100 Day Plan.
Speaking at an Institute of Directors Leaders’ Lunch, the Chief Minister announced:
• the delivery of new affordable housing at the St Saviour’s hospital site, helping
Islanders get on the property ladder and providing accommodation for key
workers and those with complex needs
•plans to appoint a Turnaround Team for the Health Service to address the
issues identified in Professor Mascie-Taylor’s recent report
• plans to make the public service more focused, flexible and productive in order
to avoid the need for additional recruitment
Deputy Moore said:
“We have made an excellent start with our 100 Day Plan, delivering support to assist
Islanders with the rising cost of living, streamlining Government and engaging across
the community on the key challenges we are facing.
“This work will continue, and I have today announced our intention to deliver new
affordable and key worker housing at St Saviour’s hospital which will begin to address
the housing crisis.
“We must improve our public services. We will appoint a turnaround team for the
hospital to address the serious issues identified in Professor Mascie-Taylor’s report
and ensure we deliver an improved service for Islanders.
“I am also conscious of the need for Government to be more productive. We will
deploy our existing resources towards key priorities rather than continually recruiting
and expanding the public service further.”
