CARE provided to poorly youngsters by the Oxford University Hospitals is in good health, according to a recent report.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) surveyed children and young people being treated at the hospitals across Oxfordshire, plus parents and carers.

The results of the 2016 report have just been published which revealed the care provided to young people by Oxford University Hospitals was good and in several areas better than others across the country.

Good communication between staff, patients and carers was an area where the Trust excelled.

Children's Patient experience lead Tracy Toohey said: "We are delighted to have done so well in the survey.

"The Trust is committed to enhancing and improving the experience of the children and young people we care for.

"Undergoing treatment can be daunting, and we’re pleased to know that the right elements are in place to make the experience as positive as possible."
