Full extent of the proposed cuts to St Helier Hospital emerge
The full extent of the proposed cuts to St Helier Hospital is now emerging.
The knock on effects of St Helier Hospital losing its A&E, maternity and children’s ward will mean the loss of other services including neonatal intensive care, intensive care for adults and some of its renal services.
A spokesman for Better Services Better Value said: "If the proposals go ahead, the hospital would not provide maternity services, so would not provide neonatal intensive care.
"It would provide a high dependency unit for adults treated in the planned care centre, but not an intensive care unit, as this would require the back-up needed by emergency care.
"We would anticipate renal dialysis continuing at the hospital, but not renal medicine.
"Current projections are for around 200 acute inpatient beds, including the planned care centre."
