"Jersey Don't Like Being Told What To Do"

HSSD "fully committed" to inquiry

Health Minister Anne Pryke

Jersey's Health and Social Services Department has caved into pressure to hand over documents to the inquiry into historical child abuse.

The panel wanted copies of all records of the compensation scheme that was set up for victims.

HSSD originally held them back claiming it would be a breach of confidentiality.

They've now made a u-turn and given the inquiry team the paperwork.

A statement read: “The Minister for Health and Social Services, and her Department, are fully committed to supporting the work of the Jersey Care Inquiry, while taking care to ensure that victims’ interests are protected.

“The Scheme records have now been provided on the understanding that the Inquiry will manage the records in compliance with the Data Protection Law and that confidentiality will be preserved.”
