Chief Nurse to outline winter pressure plans at Healthwatch Oxfordshire Board meeting in Thame next week

Plans to deal with winter pressures at Oxfordshire’s acute hospitals will be explained at the next Board meeting of Healthwatch Oxfordshire, the county’s independent health and social care watchdog.

Sam Foster, the Chief Nurse at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (OUH), will outline how the Trust will cope with the extra demand which always occurs during the colder months, putting strain on services. OUH is working closely with partners in the Oxfordshire health and social care system – including Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group, Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust, Oxfordshire  County Council, SCAS and Age UK – in planning for this winter.

She will be joined by colleagues Karen Fuller, Deputy Director for Adult Services and Tehmeena Ajma, Winter Director – Oxfordshire Health and Social Care system.

The meeting will be held at the Spread Eagle Hotel, Cornmarket, Thame, OX9 2BW, on Tuesday, October 16, 7pm to 9pm.

OUH is responsible for the running of the John Radcliffe, Nuffield Orthopaedic and Churchill hospitals in Oxford, and the Horton General Hospital in Banbury.

After Sam Foster’s presentation, there will be an opportunity to ask questions, followed by Healthwatch Oxfordshire’s usual Board business.

Rosalind Pearce, Executive Director, Healthwatch Oxfordshire, said: “OUH has a huge amount of work to address this issue, and it will be very interesting to hear how it plans to deal with what is now an annual problem. We are very grateful to Sam Foster for taking the time to come and share her plans with us.”

Papers for the meeting will be available shortly beforehand at https://healthwatchoxfordshire.co.uk/our-reports/board-papers-and-minutes/
