Transforming Health in Oxfordshire
Our ambition is to transform the Oxfordshire health and social care system to improve the health of the population, reduce inequalities and deliver services which are high quality, cost effective and sustainable, while reducing bureaucracy where there is no benefit to patients / users.
Following a period of pre-engagement during summer/autumn 2016 including the Big Health and Care Conversation Roadshows, OCCG then undertook a comprehensive 12 week public consultation between 16 January and 9 April 2017 to gather views from across Oxfordshire and surrounding areas about proposed changes to some acute hospital services in Oxfordshire. This was known as the Big Health and Care Consultation and was run on behalf of the Oxfordshire Transformation Programme. This is the first phase of proposed changes which focus on improving quality of services and making permanent some temporary changes made in 2016.
This Phase One consultation was seeking views on:
- Changing the use of acute hospital beds across Oxfordshire
- Planned care services at the Horton General Hospital, Banbury
- Stroke services across Oxfordshire
- Critical (intensive) care services at the Horton General Hospital, Banbury
- Maternity services, including obstetrics, special care baby unit and emergency gynaecology services at the Horton General Hospital, Banbury.
