Mid July saw the launch of the Big Health and Care Conversation roadshows to support the Oxfordshire Healthcare Transformation  Programme.

These drop-in events gave people across the county the opportunity to talk to clinicians and senior NHS staff about the need for change and the emerging models of care.

Six roadshows have been held in the Oxfordshire Localities: in Banbury, Wantage,  Oxford City, Wallingford, Bicester and Witney.  Around 300 people dropped in to view displays, ask questions and give their feedback.

The NHS in Oxfordshire is calling on young people, parents, patients, carers and people who live and work in Oxfordshire to have their say on how health care is delivered.

The Big Conversation events are being held to encourage people to drop in for an informal conversation with NHS clinicians and staff to share their ideas on how NHS services in Oxfordshire can deliver high quality care now and in the future.

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

The events are informal drop-ins with medical professionals on hand to take questions and listen to feedback.

From June to October 2016 patients and the public are being involved in the development of proposals to transform the way health and care are delivered in the county.

This period of engagement will inform our thinking and help us to develop our plans and ideas for the way services might be best provided in the future. We want to hear people’s views to as part of an on-going process that will lead to public consultation later in the year on proposals for how some services may be configured in the future.

There will be a range of communications and engagement activities which will take place over the summer. This includes roadshows. See the list below for dates and locations.
