Jersey health cuts plan 'will hit vulnerable'
Jersey's ability to look after some vulnerable residents would be affected by planned job cuts, the chairman of a group reviewing proposals says.
Plans to cut Health Department costs include not filling a drugs and alcohol counsellor vacancy, plus one in child and adolescent mental health services.
Not filling the two posts would save more than £100,000 a year.
Deputy Geoff Southern said such a move would hit services which were already understaffed and overstretched.
The proposals from Health Minister Anne Pryke are part of an attempt to cut the department's spending by £3.7m next year.
