Doctors oppose health reforms

THERE is a real danger that the States will spend millions of pounds creating a new Health system modelled on the NHS which is neither suitable for Jersey, safe for patients, nor sustainable, doctors have warned in a hard-hitting letter to Health chiefs.
Their concerns are raised in the letter written by the Primary Care Body, which represents the Island’s GPs, to Health chief executive Julie Garbutt and leaked to the media.
It was written to express the concerns of GPs about sweeping changes at Health which were set out in the States Health White Paper and approved by the Assembly last year.
