A new virtual reality video for Jersey's £710 million hospital at Overdale has been revealed.

It comes as a public consultation begins for residents to consider the site's design with various events to be held throughout May.

A planning application will then be submitted later this year, with construction due to start in early 2025.

The proposed hospital will include a new emergency department, critical care, a women's and children's centre, and more inpatient wards.

Health Minister Tom Binet says he is pleased with the designs, explaining: "It's an improvement on where we were and it actually manages to make the funding look a bit more sane.

"It's spread over a 12-month period rather than trying to be spent all in one go."

The public consultation will close at 11:59pm on Tuesday 4 June and more information can be found here.
