Your care: support and advice

We know that it can be an unsettling time when you or those you care about are undergoing medical treatment. But don’t worry: we’re here to help.

Getting started

If you are experiencing non-life threatening health problems for the first time and think that you might need treatment, you need to contact your GP in the first instance. Once you have seen your GP they will be able to refer you to the most appropriate local health service.

If you are not registered with a GP yet or are unsure of your GP’s contact details, please visit where you can find contact details for all your local healthcare services.

If you are already registered as a patient at Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust, or have a family member or friend who is, then you should find all the information you are looking for here.

What to do in an emergency

Find out who to contact if you, or someone you know has concerns about their immediate health.​

Most of our referrals, regardless of what service you need will come to us from your GP. 

We do accept some self-referrals into some of our specialist mental health services, but you still need to be registered with a GP.

We know that coming into hospital can be an anxious or unsettling time.

We would like to reassure you that our staff will be there to make you feel welcome, show you around and help you settle in.

Supporting families, friends and carers is central to the work we do as an organisation.

It plays a key part in allowing us to provide the best possible care to our patients and service users.
