A pressure group, set up by islanders, will lobby Jersey's government over the new hospital.

Friends of Our New Hospital say they will "act as an independent and objective source of information, commentary and advice on Island Health Care in general and in particular on the Government’s 'Our Hospital Project'.”

Our objective is to create and sustain a public campaign to assist our Government in accelerating the completion of the new hospital.

We will make every effort to mobilize public opinion and to lobby our Government to ensure progress is made as soon as possible.

– Bruce Willing, Chair of the Steering Group for Friends of Our New Hospital

A website is under development, however the group have asked anyone interested to contact members Tom Binet, Graham Bisson, Peter Funk, Andy Howell and Jean Lelliott if they want to learn more.
