Health and Social Services Department

Share this page

The Health & Social Services Department is responsible to the States of Guernsey, to promote, protect and improve the health and social well-being of the people of Guernsey and Alderney.

The Department has a wide mandate delivering a diverse range of services including preventing, diagnosing and treating people with illnesses and disease and caring for them in its hospital services and supporting people in the community, including people with disabilities.

The Department also provides social services, including ensuring the welfare and protection of children and promoting, protecting and improving personal, environmental and public health for residents within the Bailiwick of Guernsey.

20/20 Vision

People are living longer and there will be fewer working-aged men and women paying the taxes and Social Security contributions that fund health and social care for the Bailiwick of Guernsey.
 
The HSSD is therefore looking at what will be required to provide Guernsey, Alderney and Herm with adequate and affordable health and social care in the years up to 2020 and what steps are needed to get there.
 
We have called this process our '2020 Vision' and it will help the HSSD and the States to decide what actions need to be taken to enable people to live healthy and independent lives. A copy of the full document is available to read or download from this page.
