Statement from System Leaders across the NHS in Oxfordshire

Date: 02 March 2018

update

The NHS has reflected on the experience of running Phase 1 of the Oxfordshire Transformation Programme. We understand that we need to learn from the experience and approach the improvement of local services in a very different manner.

Alongside this, a recent Care Quality Commission Local System Review has emphasised the need for much better health and social care planning together and the need for an overarching vision and strategy for health and care in Oxfordshire.

We understand that the best service improvements are those where patients, the wider public and key stakeholders (including local authorities, the voluntary sector and our social care partners) work together to co-design services based upon the health and care needs of the local population. We need to break down organisational barriers and work in a much more integrated way to improve care for residents and patients in Oxfordshire.

We therefore recognise the need to progress with the next phase in a very different way.

We need to listen to local people and understand better at local level how to work in a more integrated way to improve care for residents and patients in Oxfordshire.

Going forward, system leaders will bring together our individual organisation’s strategies to ensure we have one over-arching strategy, owned by the Health and Wellbeing Board. Over the next few weeks we will describe how we plan to work with the public and other stakeholders in looking at the population’s health and care needs in order to develop together a health and social care system that is fit for the future.
