Number of permanent beds in proposed hospital (FOI)

Number of permanent beds in proposed hospital (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 04 May 2022.
Prepared internally, no external costs.


According to the latest information put out on the 'Our Hospital' page, there will be 267 PERMANENT beds in our new hospital. This does not tie in with the design brief. Could you therefore please provide a break down of the wards and beds numbers in each ward of these 267 permanent beds?
I don't just want how many wards and how many beds in each, I would like a proper breakdown (ie Surgical, Medical, Private etc) A fully transparent breakdown of each ward and what each ward will contain, not what it can be expanded to in an emergency. I want to know how many actual beds I will be able to count if I walk into that hospital and look into each ward, not bed head services. Actual beds available at ALL times. 


The information showing the breakdown of permanent beds is publicly available on in response to a previous Freedom of Information request, therefore, Article 23 (Information accessible to applicant by other means) of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 has been applied.
