Update from OUH on hospital services on Monday 19 September

13/09/2022

Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust would like to reassure residents in Oxfordshire that we will continue to run emergency and urgent care services on the additional bank holiday that has been declared for Monday 19 September for the Queen’s funeral.

Most planned operations and outpatient appointments booked for next Monday (19 September) will be rescheduled and we will contact patients directly affected to rearrange their appointment.  

Sara Randall, Chief Operating Officer, said: “In line with organisations up and down the country, we will mark the day of Her Majesty The Queen’s funeral as a bank holiday.  

“We plan to run the same services for patients that we do on other bank holidays during the course of the year. Urgent and emergency care will, of course, continue.  This includes urgent cancer care. 

“Our staff will contact patients whose routine outpatient appointments or operations are postponed to ensure that they are rescheduled in a timely way.

“If people need urgent, but not life-threatening, medical help over the bank holiday, or at any other time of the year, the teams at NHS 111 are on hand to help and give advice to direct you to the most appropriate service.”
