Victoria Prentis MP  has launched a new campaign to protect services at the Horton General Hospital.

An e-mail received by our District Councillor Ken Atack  reads:-

Subject: #Banbury2JR campaign

Dear Ken,

I hope you had a lovely Christmas and a very happy New Year!

As part of our fight to protect services at the Horton General Hospital, I have launched the campaign, #Banbury2JR.

The campaign will encourage people in and around Banbury to fill out a form (attached) about journey times to the JR in Oxford, and post their travel times on social media using the hash tag #Banbury2JR. My office will then collate the information and pass it onto the Oxford University Hospitals Trust and Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group.

Form for Banbury2JR- final

With a consultation on health care expected to begin this month, information on journey times will be vital to establish the true effect of any changes to the Horton.

It is hoped that the form will be published in the Banbury Guardian, but I would be most grateful if you could also share this campaign with local people.

Best wishes


Victoria Prentis MP
