Appointment of Oxfordshire System Urgent Care Director

Date: 18 October 2021

Health and social care partners in Oxfordshire have welcomed the appointment of Lily O’Connor as the Oxfordshire System Urgent Care Director. She will take up this role as an 18-month secondment from Oxford University Hospitals NHS FT. 

Lily is a talented and experienced clinician and is stepping forward to undertake this challenging role to improve urgent care delivery for our county, and with colleagues across Buckinghamshire and Berkshire West.  The role is jointly funded between Oxfordshire CCG and Oxfordshire County Council, and has the full support of all system leaders to deliver change wherever it is needed.

Lily’s passion for fostering a culture of ‘Home first’, driving and sustaining performance improvement of all Urgent Care and ambulatory pathways - with operational teams across all providers - will continue to drive up urgent care outcomes. She will work closely with the team delivering the community services strategy and the Ageing Well urgent community response, helping to ensure a joined-up, system-focused approach.

Lily is expected to formally move into the role in December, although she has already been successfully assisting Oxfordshire in delivery of much of this work to date.
