Caroline Landon, the Chief Officer for HCS and Rose Naylor, the Island's Chief Nurse, have advised the Minister for Health and Social Services of their intentions to stand down from their roles on 31 March 2023.
The Minister in respecting each individual decision has expressed her thanks to both the Chief Officer and Chief Nurse for their respective service to health and community services in Jersey over many years.
The Head of the Public Sector and Government CEO, Suzanne Wylie said: ''The roles of Chief Officer and Chief Nurse come with substantial responsibility.
"Caroline, in her role as Chief Officer, navigated Health and Community Services through unprecedented challenges arising from the global Covid-19 pandemic and more recently the major incidents affecting our island.
"Rose, in her role as Chief Nurse, has provided professional leadership to nurses across the health system in Jersey, overseeing the expansion of the nursing education provision, including on-Island degrees and qualifications. This contribution changed career prospects of local students for the better, and this will be her legacy across 18 years of public service.
"Islanders can be assured of service continuity which will now be the focus of the Executive Team supported by the turnaround team who are working alongside officers to continue to change the service for the better and deliver the recommendations of the Hugo Mascie-Taylor report. That work continues with the focus being on providing high quality services for Islanders in an affordable way."
As this announcement relates to individual employment matters, no further comments will be made until interim arrangements, which will be put in place in time for the departures, are made.
