OCCG: Oxfordshire’s health and care services – The Big Consultation – Phase 1

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.
