Transforming Health in Oxfordshire
The Oxfordshire Transformation Programme's (2016 -2018) purpose was to develop plans for integrated GP, community and hospital services. In 2017, the NHS in Oxfordshire embarked on a consultation to seeks the views of the public on a number of proposals around acute hospital services (acute hospitals provide a wide range of specialist care and treatment including surgery, medical care, emergency care and tests) including:
- changing the way we use our hospital beds and increasing care closer to home in Oxfordshire
- planned care at the Horton General Hospital (planned care includes tests and treatment planned in advance and not urgent or emergency care)
- acute stroke services in Oxfordshire
- critical care (critical care helps people with life-threatening or very serious injuries and illnesses) at the Horton General Hospital
- maternity services at the Horton General Hospital including obstetrics and the Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU).
