Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust

City community hospital (Oxford)

00025653City community hospital is located at the Fulbrook Centre on the grounds of Churchill hospital and provides rehabilitation and palliative care for people who no longer require the services of an acute hospital.

The hospital has a dedicated team of nurses, occupational therapists and physiotherapists and is supported by GPs and gerontologists (doctors specialising in the care of older people). Staff work closely with social services to source care placements and liaise with other care agencies.

All patients enjoy the privacy of a single room at the unit, which was refurbished in in 2014 and replaces a hospital previously located at John Radcliffe hospital.
