Chief Minister's New Year's message highlights Brexit challenges and local issues

The Alzheimers and Dementia Day facility will open next week, and the residential facility will open in the next ninety days.

And applicants for Bob Peliza Mews and Hassan Centenary Terraces will soon receive letters to start the process of buying new affordable homes.

These two announcements were made during the Chief Minister’s New Year message on GBC Television this evening. He promised 2017 would be an exciting year, and pointed out that none of the important developments for our community had been derailed by Brexit.

The Chief Minister also announced that the role of Matron would be re-introduced into St Bernard’s Hospital, in order to ensure that patient care is at the heart of the Health Service.

Mr Picardo, however said Brexit would take up much of his time this year, and added that this was a seminal moment in our political history. He called for unity and hard work towards a common endeavour.
