Hospital News is a programme that has been produced to bring special news and features from behind the scenes of the Oxford's Hospitals. The aim is to inform patients about what is happening in the hospitals, tell them about events, activities and organisations which they and their friends and family might be interested in taking part in or contacting for support when they leave hospital.
