The OUH story

As part of the new vision, we have begun a review of our Trust strategy. Our clinicians have been mapping and reviewing care pathways to design better and more efficient services and patient care across all our hospital sites. Our focus is on how quality improvements can be made to drive up performance and use resources more effectively which in turn will help to secure financial sustainability.

We want to use technology to shift resources towards preventing disease, early diagnosis and earlier intervention to keep people well. Using new technologies and digital health applications, many being developed in Oxford, we can begin to revolutionise the delivery of healthcare for our populations. This will reduce the reliance on hospital-based care and support more home-based care.

Our five key themes

  • Good Quality Costs Less
    We believe that improving the quality of care and getting it right first time allows investment in our services
  • Home Sweet Home
    Providing care as close to home as possible to improve patient care
  • Go Digital
    Technology is transforming healthcare, including our ability to manage our own healthcare
  • Focus on Excellence
    Prioritising the work we do in specialist care and focusing on fewer areas
  • The Masterplan
    Our work on developing our estates strategy to ensure our hospitals are fit for the 21st Century
