  2. End-of-life care review stalled due to 'lack of resources'

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    A review of palliative care in Guernsey has stalled because of a lack of resources and the Covid-19 pandemic, the president of the Committee for Health and Social Care (HSC) said.

    Deputy Al Broard said HSC would not be able to complete the review without "additional resource being provided" and the delay had been exacerbated by coronavirus.

    He added it would not be possible to confirm when it would be completed.

    The confirmation came in response to a question to Mr Brouard about the status of the review the States agreed to carry out in 2018 from Deputy Gavin St Pier.

    Mr St Pier was the original proponent of a bill to investigate legalising assisted dying, which was rejected by States members.

    The review was originally due to be completed by June 2020 - although the States was also informed of the lack of progress in 2019, which was also put down to a lack of resources.
