Oxford University Hospitals - Big Consultation



This is a reminder to have your say on the Oxfordshire health and care services - Big Consultation, Phase 1. We would like to ask you about proposals for:

• 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 is a term for healthcare which has been planned in advance and which is not urgent or an emergency such as diagnostic tests, outpatient appointments and surgery).

• 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 including obstetrics, Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU) and the effect on emergency gynaecology surgery

• Consideration of the Midwife Led Units in north Oxfordshire will be in Phase 2 but we would like some views from you to inform option development.

The full consultation document (including a glossary) is available here https://consult.oxfordshireccg.nhs.uk/consult.ti/Bighealthandcare/consultationHome or visit the CCG website www.oxonhealthcaretransformation.nhs.uk
