About Here for Health

What your local hospitals are doing to help promote your health

Oxford University Hospitals is committed not just to treat disease, but to improve people's health across Oxfordshire.

It isn't only our patients' health that's important to us; we have 11,500 staff members whom we would like to keep healthy as well - and we know that looking after our staff, physically and mentally, helps them look after our patients even better too.

Of course we can't do this alone - which is why Oxford University Hospitals is working with Oxfordshire County Council, and other local groups and organisations that share our goal of promoting health to our patients, visitors and staff.
