Oxfordshire are consulting on healthcare arrangements which will affect residents of Avon Dassett given its proximity to services at the Horton Hospital. We are grateful to the new District Councillor for Red Horse Ward, John Feilding, who is asking that residents of Warwickshire on the border with Oxfordshire are given the chance to raise their views on the proposed changes. The full consultation website is:
