VICTORIA PRENTIS MP COMMENTS ON OCCG PHASE ONE CONSULTATION REPORT

Following the publication of the Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group’s report on findings from their Phase One consultation, North Oxfordshire MP Victoria Prentis has commented:

“I have read the Clinical Commissioning Group’s report and think it provides a comprehensive overview of the Phase One consultation findings. While I appreciate that CCG Board members will have the opportunity to look at the report when they meet next week, I am keen to understand what the next steps will be as soon as possible.

“We know that the Board will be making decisions in August, but at the moment we have no idea what the final proposals will look like. It is quite clear from the report that consultees were not given sufficient information to provide informed responses. I continue to be extremely concerned about the split nature of the consultation.

“How we move forward remains unclear, but I will be doing all I can to get the answers we need and to retain acute services at the Horton General Hospital.”

Victoria has also written directly to the Chief Executive of the Clinical Commissioning Group to seek clarification on the timetable going forward.
