Cllr Sean Woodcock calls for hospital consultation to be stopped after JR fire safety review

Calls to halt consultation on Horton General Hospital fate.

Cllr Sean Woodcock calls for hospital consultation to be stopped after JR fire safety review

Banbury Town and District Councillor Sean Woodcock, says,

“Given the disruption and costs involved in making four buildings on the John Radcliffe site safe again, I suggest the current consultation on the future of our hospitals be halted until we have a fuller picture of the impact this may have on the Trust’s resources.

The consultations on the Sustainability & Transformation Plan (STP) are built on a premise of reconfiguring services in Oxfordshire, including massive capital expenditure on things like a new diagnostics unit at the Horton. These things are now in considerable doubt as the cost of making existing facilities safe could be enormous.”

What you can do.

Write to the OCCG before they decide the outcome of the first consultation – a decision which, in turn, will determine the fate of the Horton General Hospital.

The Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group meet on 10 August to determine the outcome of the first consultation into healthcare in Oxfordshire – which, in turn, will determine the fate of the Horton General Hospital.

Email them and make sure they understand that we need ALL the services of a full district general hospital to be retained at the Horton General Hospital.

Make sure they receive your email by their deadline of 9.30am on 9 August!
