Improving Community Health and Care Services

Oxfordshire’s health organisations and councils are working together with voluntary and community sector groups to modernise our community services. We want to improve health and wellbeing outcomes for everyone in Oxfordshire and increase independence for older people. 

We will be developing this work with the full engagement of local people including those who currently use services, carers, staff who work in these services, the people who work and volunteer in community and voluntary organisations and the general public and their representatives. We understand that this is a complex project and many people will have an interest. 

The first stage is to ensure we have agreed principles that will help to steer the work. These are not finalised and we are keen to hear what people think. 

Please read the documents below setting out the draft principles and respond with your views and comments by 10 October 2021. Thank you for your time
