In March, NHS England announced Oxfordshire’s PET CT Scanner contract would be awarded to InHealth.
The world class service is currently provided by Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (OUHFT) at the Churchill Hospital, Oxford. It serves thousands of patients every year from across Oxfordshire and its bordering counties. NHS England ran recently a procurement procedure and announced private provider, InHealth, would take over the running of the service. This has led to wide-scale concern over the safety and outcomes for patients in Oxfordshire, which local MPs share.
- Oxfordshire Joint Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee (HOSC) referred this matter to the Department for Health, outlining the issues with a change in provider.
- Oxfordshire MPs write to Secretary of State for Health, Matt Hancock MP, expressing concerns and supporting HOSC's referral (letter below).
- Department of Health do not accept HOSC's referral.
- Victoria Prentis MP requests urgent meeting with Health Ministers.
