Guernsey hospital to use temporary surgical wards

Two surgical wards at Guernsey's main hospital could be replaced with a temporary structure for at least the next two years.

The health department already hoped to move patients from Giffard Ward, which has suffered from structural problems and leaks, into a temporary ward.

Now it hopes to also move the patients from the De Saumarez Ward, if planners approve of the temporary building.

A decision on future of the wards is due before the end of the year.

The updated plans for the Princess Elizabeth Hospital site involve building a second storey on the temporary structure.
