Family Nursing & Home Care’s (FNHC) Committee chairman is Jersey born Phil Romeril.
Phil qualified as a pharmacist in 1987, studying at Aston University in Birmingham in the UK.
He purchased his first pharmacy business – F G De Faye’s Chemist Limited – in 1991 and expanded the business to include eight pharmacies, operating in both Jersey and Guernsey in the Channel Islands.
In 2014, the business was sold to the Channel Islands Cooperative Society (CICS) and at this time it provided employment for over 80 people.
Phil joined CICS and facilitated the integration of the pharmacy business into the Society’s structures. He also helped establish Cooperative Medical Care which has challenged the historic model of General Practice in Jersey, introducing highly visible pricing policies and supporting the public of the island by introducing initiatives such as island wide free GP appointments for children under the age of 5.
From 2004 onwards, Phil has developed and maintained a strong working relationship with the officers of both the Health and the Social Security Departments, working and advising the government on matters relating to system redesign in healthcare.
From 2016, Phil established a new business – Homecall Limited – to develop and deliver the Call&Check service both in Jersey and internationally. He currently holds the role of Chairman and CEO of the organisation.
Phil has undertaken a number of roles within the Island’s community:
Prior to his appointment as Chairperson of Family Nursing & Home Care Charity (FNHC) in 2018, Phil was a member of the Committee of Trustees (2016 – 2018) and before that on the Operational Governance Committee (2004 – 2016).
He has previously sat on the Primary Care Hub Board (2014 – 2019) and Healthcare Transitional Steering Group (2016 – 2019) in the States of Jersey. He currently sits on the Governance Redesign Group, Sustainable Primary Care Review Project Board, Sustainable Primary Care Implementation Board, Healthcare Informatics Group and Care Hub Executive Board.
