St Helena Health Directorate Key Services

Under the guidance of its Director, supported by a staff compliment of around 250, made up of both local and specialist personnel, the St Helena Health Directorate has overall responsibility for the Island’s health care services.

Where the Island is unable to accommodate or provide medical care/services of a serious nature, the Directorate is responsible for referral of such cases overseas. This is done through its links with the South African and United Kingdom medical services.

The St Helena Health Directorate takes a leading role in promoting healthy eating and lifestyle. This is communicated through Public Relations, public seminars, leaflets, campaigns and on occasion, through the use of local TV programming.

Key services provided by the Directorate include:

  • Medical, nursing and community care services
  • Elderly and home care services
  • Pharmacy and Laboratory services
  • Dental Services
  • Administration support services
