Roadshows reach out to Abingdon residents

Date: 04 October 2016


The NHS in Oxfordshire is seeking your views on how local GP, community and hospital services should develop to ensure services are of high quality, closer to home, more convenient with better access and can overcome a £200m funding gap by 2020/21.

Several roadshow events have already taken place in Banbury, Wantage, Oxford, Wallingford, Bicester, Henley-on-Thames and Witney but we still need to hear from more people in the Abingdon area.

The Abingdon roadshow takes place on Wednesday 19 October from 9.30am to 4pm at Abingdon Community FreeSpace Shop, in Bury Street, Abingdon OX14 3QY (next to the travel agent and opposite H. Samuel).  

This is a  ‘drop in’ style event and senior NHS clincians and leaders will be available for an informal chat with you to share your ideas on how NHS services in Oxfordshire can deliver high quality care now and in the future.

Staff will be available to answer your questions between 10am and 2pm; outside of those times please feel free to pop in and pick up some information.

The roadshow will focus on:

  • the financial health challenges in Oxfordshire  
  • how we can improve the overall health of people in Oxfordshire
  • how we can prevent people from getting ill
  • how we can improve quality
  • how we make best use of taxpayers' money
  • how you can get more actively involved including hearing about our plans for public consultation later in the year around models of care across Oxfordshire

Damon Palmer, Transformation Programme Director, said “We really want the public to be partners with us in this process.  We want parents, teenagers, patients, carers and people who work in the county to tell us their views about how we can improve NHS services in Oxfordshire.  We cannot afford to continue providing services in the way we have done in the past.  Together we need to re-think how we deliver health and social care services.”
