Hospital refurbishment brings services and clinics closer to the community

Hospital refurbishment brings services and clinics closer to the community

Another Oxford Health team is in the spotlight following a series of independent five-star reviews on the I Want Great Care website.

Staff at Wantage Community Hospital are celebrating after receiving a string of five-star independent reviews from patients.

The hospital, which launched a range of new services and clinics three months ago in newly refurbished rooms at the site, is at the centre of the community and is convenient for people who may otherwise have to travel further afield.

One patient said: “It is fantastic for local people.”

Sheree Martin, Head of Operations for Community Services, said: “It is really nice to see that the hard work that went into refurbishing the rooms at the hospital is paying off with the feedback that we have had from patients.

“The team here is quite new but everyone works really hard to make sure that all visitors have a good experience.”

Another patient added: “The staff were friendly, and the appointment ran on time.”

Services currently provided at Wantage Community Hospital include children’s physiotherapy clinics and assessments for children aged 0 to 5 years who have been referred because of speech, language and communication delays and disorders, Ophthalmology clinics, a Midwife Led Unit, Perinatal, Adult Eating Disorders, Talking Space, Psychological Therapies, Neuro Development Clinic, Podiatry Clinic, Health Share Physiotherapy Clinic, Speech and Language Therapies.
