Jersey's health service is facing its biggest overhaul according to the island's health minister.
Deputy Anne Pryke has revealed the new model for health and social care in Jersey after consulting islanders.
More than 85% of the 1,300 people who responded want the system redesigned to allow more care in the community, instead of relying on the hospital.
She said in 10 years Jersey could have a new hospital and the changes could cost £20.4m over three years.
Deputy Pryke said pressures had got so much this had to become the island's priority.
'Funding is vital' She said: "Health and social services is under pressure because of the ageing population, nursing recruitment and replacing consultants when they retire.
"So we need to redesign and care for people in the community and having these extra services and the funding for these services is vital."
The health department said it would achieve the changes by teaming up with groups and charities such as Family Nursing and Home Care and by pumping more money into the system.
It said by 2040 the number of islanders over 65 will have increased by 95%.
Deputy Pryke said redesigning the health service was the only realistic option to cope with an ageing population.
Islanders have eight weeks to have their say in a public consultation on what they think of the plans to transform health care in Jersey.
