The NHS in Oxfordshire offers a variety of treatment and advice options to make sure you get the best health care and you find links to many of them here in this section, together with other useful information, such as resources for carers and details on the Oxfordshire Care Summary.
Use the health advice and pharmacy opening time pages to find out about common symptoms and how to manage them. Remember, NHS emergency services, such as A&E and 999 are under increasing pressure and one out of every four people who go to A&E could have either self-treated for minor illnesses and injuries or been treated by other local services.
