Medical staff at Jersey General Hospital and Overdale Hospital (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 30 September 2020.
Prepared internally, no external costs.


My question concerns the number of staff at the General Hospital. Please note that this does not include St Saviour's Hospital, only Jersey General Hospital and Overdale Hospital.
Please provide monthly figures from beginning of 2018 onwards, broken down by surgeons, anaesthesiologists, pathologists, nursing staff, consultants of various disciplines, doctors, lab technicians, occupational therapists, dieticians, physiotherapists, radiologists, phlebotomists etc. Please do not include admin staff who may also be nurses, just those who actually look after patients.
What is the total number of staff, excluding admin, cooking and cleaning staff employed by the hospital, in each of the above disciplines?
How many of these staff are on permanent, full time contracts?
How many of these staff are employed as bank staff?
How many of these staff work part time hours?
How many job vacancies were there in each of these disciplines?

Medical staff at the General Hospital
The Government of Jersey commenced an organisation restructure in 2018. In addition, HCS have been developing and implementing the departments target operating model, therefore, system data will not provide a true reflection of the vacancies for the department for this period. To provide a response to this question would therefore require a manual check of the information held. The Government of Jersey would not be able to provide the requested data within the time allocated to Freedom of Information responses pursuant to the Freedom of Information (Costs) (Jersey) Regulations 2014.

Article applied

Article 16 A scheduled public authority may refuse to supply information if cost excessive

(1) A scheduled public authority that has been requested to supply information may refuse to supply the information if it estimates that the cost of doing so would exceed an amount determined in the manner prescribed by Regulations.
Regulation 2 (1) of the Freedom of Information (Costs) (Jersey) Regulations 2014 allows an authority to refuse a request for information where the estimated cost of dealing with the request would exceed the specified amount of the cost limit of £500. This is the estimated cost of one person spending 12.5 working hours in determining whether the department holds the information, locating, retrieving and extracting the information.
