Cuts to Oxfordshire NHS


Today, we were out leafleting with Oxford Labour, who were having a national campaign day about proposed cuts to the NHS. You can watch a short video here. "Sustainability and Transformation Plans", as they are called, have been drawn up to cut around £20 billion of the £130 billion NHS budget.In Oxfordshire, that's likely to be roughly £200 million a year. We made a short video explaining the background.


Plans have already been drawn up and agreed by NHS England, but important details are being held back. For example we don't know whether the local plans will involve closing all of Oxfordshire's community hospitals, and how far the plans to 'downgrade' the Horton Hospital will go. You can read the public plans for Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire here.


Despite not saying exactly what they are planning, Oxfordshire CCG are consulting on the proposals over the next 2 months. It is clear that they will try and implement the plans from the beginning of the new financiyal year in April. If you want to find out for yourself, the consultation events will be held on the following dates:
