Healthwatch Oxfordshire

Healthwatch Oxfordshire is your voice on health and social care

Whether it is improving services today, or helping to shape them for tomorrow, Healthwatch Oxfordshire is all about enabling local voices to influence the delivery and design of local health and social care in our county.

Healthwatch is independent, and accountable to the people of Oxfordshire, so please tell Healthwatch how you would like to be treated and cared for, and what is important to you when using health and social care services, and together you can make a difference.

March 2019: Have your say on the NHS in Oxfordshire

Healthwatch Oxfordshire is helping to gather people's views on the NHS Long Term Plan.

Your local NHS needs to hear from you about what it should do to make care better for your community.

  • How would you help people live healthier lives?
  • What would make health services better?
  • How would you make it easier for people to take control of their own health and wellbeing?
  • What would you do to make support better for people with long-term conditions?

Healthwatch Oxfordshire is joining Healthwatch branches across the country in running this major survey.

Working with the voluntary sector

Many hospital departments have links with voluntary organisations. Involvement varies; for some it is an exchange of information, and for others it is being far more involved in service developments.

The following organisations provide important support for the Trust and its patients and staff.

Healthtalkonline / Youthhealthtalk

DIPEx has created two websites: and

of people's experiences of nearly 60 different illnesses and health conditions.

The websites are aimed at patients, their carers, family and friends, doctors, nurses and other health professionals, and are based on in-depth qualitative research carried out by the Health Experiences Research Group at the University of Oxford.
