Anne Pryke, who was appointed to the post this week, has today revealed what changes she would like to make to the embattled department.
With around 3,000 employees to manage and a budget of £154 million, the Trinity Deputy knows that there was a big challenge ahead.
Former Health Minister Jim Perchard, who resigned after a controversial row with Senator Stuart Syvret in the States, said that the General Hospital was ‘impractical, old, tired and getting past its sell-by date’.
Deputy Pryke also believes that the Island needs an up-to-date and fit-for-purpose Health Service.
