AN adviser is to review the Our Hospital project.
Alan Moore has been appointed by Infrastructure Minister Tom Binet to provide advice on the Overdale scheme.
Deputy Binet recently said that the £804 million scheme was ‘no longer feasible’, and that his ongoing review into the project – which is examining alternative options – was a ‘necessity’.
Mr Moore has previous experience of managing and delivering large projects in the health sector. He will be responsible for the delivery of the completed report following the review.
The pair recently visited Northern Ireland to inspect four examples of modern healthcare facilities.
Deputy Binet said: ‘I’m delighted to have Alan on board to advise on the review. He’s an extremely down-to-earth, practical individual, and just the sort of person we need to assist us in drafting a workable plan to develop our future healthcare facilities.
‘The visits to Northern Ireland provided a great insight into some of the options which are working successfully over there and could work well in Jersey. I look forward to presenting the review findings later next month.’
