CCG publishes consultation findings
Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group has published the findings of its major consultation exercise earlier this year, ahead of its Board meeting on June 20.
The main conclusions of the report were:
- People want care close to home
- Support for maintaining Horton as a district general
- “Reasonable levels” of support for changes to stroke care
- Support for care close to home but concern that the infrastructure in place to support that is not sufficiently developed
- “Universal concern and lack of support” for Horton maternity proposals
- Suggestion that population growth and development in Banbury will mean reducing services at Horton not necessary.
- Frustration at parking and transport at JR and Horton.
- Criticism of consultation process itself, including holding in two parts.
Three areas, parking, travel and the maternity services at the Horton, were deemed serious enough to require more research work. The findings of this research will be presented to the Clinical Commissioning Group's August Board meeting.
