PEOPLE in Oxfordshire are being asked for their views on a set of priorities planned to support improved health and wellbeing across the county.

The Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire (BOB) Integrated Care Partnership’s (ICP), which Oxfordshire County Council is a member of, has developed a draft strategy which proposes a common set of priorities that partners will work on together to help improve people’s lives.

Councillor Mark Lygo, Oxfordshire County Council’s cabinet member for health and equalities, said: “It’s hugely important that we hear the views of everybody to help appropriately shape the partnerships priorities.
