Hospital Services in Oxfordshire and Surrounding Area

NHS hospital services are run and managed by NHS trusts, which make sure that hospitals provide high-quality healthcare.  Independent Private Hospitals provide services for a fee (sometimes funded by the NHS). Community Hospitals in Oxfordshire are not run or managed by the same trust as the main hospitals and their details are listed under Community Health.

Apart from emergency care, hospital treatment is arranged through your GP (usually using the NHS e-referral service). Treatment at NHS hospitals is only free if you are a resident in England. 

There are a number of hospitals (NHS and independent) in Oxfordshire and its surrounding areas, offering a range of medical and surgical services including trauma, intensive care, heart centre and cardiothoracic.
