Public Consultation

The future of provision of Intermediate Care in North Oxfordshire

Oxfordshire County Council is running a public consultation between 5th October and 8th December 2015 to give the public an opportunity to consider, influence and give their views on two proposed models for providing Intermediate Care in the north of the county.

Intermediate Care services are designed to help people, usually older people, who have an illness or injury to stay at home rather than go into hospital, and to support people to get back home as quickly as possible after a hospital stay.

Intermediate Care services can be provided to people in different ways, as a bed-based service, or as a community service in people’s own homes by a team of social care and health staff.

What we are trying to find out from the consultation

Oxfordshire County Council Adult Social Care Services would like to hear people’s views on the proposed models for how Intermediate Care will be provided in North Oxfordshire.

We are consulting on two models, Model A and Model B outlined below. 

Model A

The Intermediate Care Unit in Chipping Norton continues and the full 14 bed service is provided by the Orders of St John Care Trust. 

Model B

Intermediate Care services based in people's own homes are further developed in North Oxfordshire, including Chipping Norton, and the Intermediate Care Unit at the Henry Cornish Care Centre is closed.

Other viable options or suggestions will be considered

As part of this consultation we are interested in hearing about other models. We are welcoming other proposals that are specific, financially viable, safe and affordable and where the outcomes are clearly beneficial to people who use the service.
