The future of GP and primary care services in Oxfordshire

Local GP practices have been working with Oxfordshire CCG and patient representatives on plans for the future of GP and primary care services in Oxfordshire.

Throughout the summer your GP practice has joined others in Oxfordshire to talk about how they currently work, what problems they regularly face and how they could work better. We have also been talking to Patient Participation Groups to find out more about the patient experience, listening to what patients feel is important and their ideas for change.

From this ongoing engagement work with patients, GPs and clinicians in your local area, we have identified the challenges each locality faces, their priorities and how those priorities could be met.

If you are interested in helping to shape the future of GP services in Oxfordshire please book to attend one of the following events for your locality:
