Secondly, the Oxfordshire Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee (HOSC) which took place last week.

One of the items on the agenda was the evaluation of the OX12 project which looked at the health and care needs of the residents of OX12 back in 2019 and was supposed to come up with recommendations. It didn’t. So another project on a similar topic is about to start across the County. See https://www.oxfordhealth.nhs.uk/news/oxford-health-community-services-strategy-development/ for details and to comment on what they are going to do.

At the meeting, there was a discussion about the future of the in-patient beds in Wantage Community Hospitals (still temporarily closed) and as the 2019 project didn't come up with recommendations and we'll have to wait until the new project does, it looks as though the beds will remain temporarily closed for at least another two years.

I’ll give more details at the AGM.

Best wishes
