A WORKSHOP on the future of healthcare across Oxfordshire was held at Townlands Hospital in Henley.

Eighteen people attended the Big Conversation Roadshow, which took place in the Maurice Tate Room.

Officials from the Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group and Oxford Health NHS Trust were on hand to answer questions from the public.

Information boards explaining the plans were on show and attendees were encouraged to fill in feedback forms.

The consultation, which began in June, covers areas such as maternity services, mental health, learning disabilities, obesity, integrated care and primary care. It is designed to help fill a £200 million funding gap by 2020/21.



Pete McGrane, clinical director for older people’s services at Oxford Health, said: “It’s a consultation on the transformation plans for a range of services across the county. It is hugely important that members of the public have their say.”

Other representatives present included Dr Andrew Burnett, south-east locality clinical director for the commissioning group, and Damon Palmer, programme director for the Oxfordshire Transformation Board.
