KE VII spending falls under financial watchdog's mandate

THE States financial watchdog will discuss whether to investigate spending at the King Edward VII Hospital.

THE States financial watchdog will discuss whether to investigate spending at the King Edward VII Hospital.

It has been in the spotlight since Health and Social Services was forced to reveal it cost more than £2.9m. to run the facility.

Deputy Mike Hadley, who argues it should be closed on value-for-money grounds, believes there are even more costs, which the department has not disclosed, which should be taken into account.

Public Accounts Committee chairman Deputy Heidi Soulsby, pictured, confirmed the issue was within its mandate and would be discussed.

The committee is also set to carry out a review of the department’s finances as a whole.

Investigate spending? That will take up a whole lot more time!

As part of our care system where would Mike Hadley put these patients who need a lot of care and attention? Wherever, please explain

As I read in the guernsey press there are 17 pat ants at the KE7 witch to my mind could be moved to the PEH were there are empty wards or back at DOK witch was purpose built for elderly people . The DOK was built for OAP s by the guernsey people and tax payers and should not be used as offices as it now is ? .
