Health & Social Care Proposes Large Scale Hospital Investment

Share this page

Monday 11 February 2019

Up to £93.4m. will be invested in the Princess Elizabeth Hospital over the next 10 years, if the States agrees to proposals unveiled today by the Health & Social Care Committee.

Called the Hospital Modernisation Programme, it will future proof services and deliver the highest quality facilities for patients and staff alike for decades. This overhaul of the hospital is fundamental to the new healthcare model being implemented in the Bailiwick - the Partnership of Purpose - and once completed, the vast majority of public facing facilities will look very different to today.

If approved by deputies at the 27th March States meeting, this investment - the largest in a generation - will start this year and be split into three phases ending in 2028.

A detailed business case for all phases has been put together, and the Committee is currently seeking approval for the £44.3m. to be invested in the first phase of the work. The total investment over 10 years is estimated to be between £72.3m to £93.4m, with separate States' approval being required before the second and third phases can begin.

The Proposals already have the support of the Policy & Resources Committee.

Committee for Health & Social Care President Heidi Soulsby said:

"The PEH Campus is very much the backbone of our health and care system and we need to ensure that it is fit for purpose to provide the future delivery of secondary health care services which all deserve.

"As is well known, demand for our services is rising, this is an inescapable fact which must be addressed. However, the current infrastructure severely limits our ability to adjust to this continual year-on-year increase in demand. At the same time, the outdated facilities make it is increasingly difficult to meet modern regulatory standards and adapt to new technology. That is why we are making these proposals to invest, modernise and refurbish the hospital now: investing in a few years will be too late.

"This substantial upgrade of the hospital is central to delivering on our cornerstone programme, the Partnership of Purpose, which reimagines the entire way healthcare is delivered in the Bailiwick. Once completed, Islanders will have a hospital which can enable top quality care to be delivered for decades to come as part of an integrated system of health and care.

"I am proud to bring these proposals for investment in modern, efficient healthcare infrastructure to the States."
