Sir - Readers in North Oxfordshire and surrounding areas may have wondered about the omission of the Horton Hospital in Banbury from the list of hospitals included in your article (May 30) about Academic Health Sciences Centres. This was an oversight in the article, and does not signify any distinction between our hospitals in Oxford and Banbury.

Partnership with the University of Oxford and the integration of clinical services, teaching and research across all of our hospital sites will enable the Horton to offer expert diagnosis, treatment and clinical care of the highest quality, and will greatly enhance its status as a provider of general hospital services for the local population.

Trevor Campbell Davis, Chief executive, Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals NHS Trust
