Vacancy Description

The overarching aim of the Jersey Care Model (JCM) is to transform health and social care, in order to improve Islanders’ physical and mental health and wellbeing. To achieve this, it proposes adopting a patient-centred approach whereby care is financially sustainable, safe and accessible, being provided in the places where people need it the most.

This also aligns closely with the Government of Jersey’s Common Strategic Policy – in particular to improve Islanders’ wellbeing and mental and physical health, whilst preparing for more Islanders living longer. Indeed, without the JCM, analysis suggests that the current health system would be overwhelmed as a result of the ageing population demographics and disease prevalence on the Island.

The JCM is a five-year programme of work that has been approved by the States Assembly and has officially started in January 2021.
