A guerrilla campaign is spreading through the suburbs in aid of St Helier Hospital.

Yellow and red stickers are popping up in windows across the borough while giant boards have also been appearing in front gardens in honour of the Save St Helier campaign.

The campaign emerged after the hospital was threatened with cuts twice over the last three years under the controversial healthcare review Better Services Better Value (BSBV).

However, despite the collapse of the review earlier this month, campaigners still fear the hospital is under threat from future cuts as local health bosses pledged to continue supporting BSBV’s analysis in developing their plans over the next five years.

Concerns have also been raised about a new law, Clause 119 (previously 118), which campaigners fear could see the hospital downgraded in the future with minimal public consultation.
