I am Barbara Ward MSc, RGN, RMN, CPN cert, mainly known for my work in nursing and voluntary roles – most recently with the excellent Covid vaccination programme at Fort Regent and in schools. I will by running for Deputy of St Clement as an Independent candidate, in this year’s elections on Wednesday 22nd June 2022.
I have lived in St Clement since 1989 and will run with the slogan:
Putting People and Health Care first.
I arrived in Jersey in 1979 and spent most of my professional nursing experience in the Island’s Health Care System, mainly in Mental Health. I have progressed from student nurse to Matron then Senior Nurse. Following redundancy in 2011 I returned as a Bank Staff Nurse in the Elderly Mental Health Area plus working part-time as the Front of House Duty Manager at the Opera House for 9 years.
I am concerned about the state of health care in the island, in particular the New Hospital Project. I coined the phrase “they are putting the cart before the horse” at the historic meeting in February that refused the Planning Application for the demolition of the present buildings at Overdale – saving Samares Ward.
I am concerned about how the Island appears to be putting buildings before people’s health care needs.
My voluntary work is as follows:
My views for the future:
Other areas of concern:
I want to focus life at parish level, partly by raising awareness among the young on Mental Health issues.
I’m a common sense people’s person, a good listener, a fighter, and a plain speaker. By standing as an Independent candidate provides me the freedom from any political party so I can work with the parish team and parishioners.
