Our Great Out of Hospital Care (GOOHC) conference and exhibition was a great success with more than 100 attendees, keen to find out more about how we plan to deliver this important part of our Oxleas Strategy 2021-24.
Held in the beautiful surroundings of Hall Place in Bexley, the event was hosted by Medical Director, Abi Fadipe, who explained to staff, service users, stakeholders and partners, how we are improving lives by connecting healthcare at home, in hospital and in the community.

All of these teams, and many more, are working on projects trust wide to help us achieve and deliver on providing great out of hospital care to those who need our help.
Welcoming people to the event, Abi Fadipe, who is Senior Responsible Officer for GOOHC, said: “I live within the footprint of Oxleas so I want the care that Oxleas provides to be good enough for my family and for everyone else.
“We are a very diverse trust working with a whole variety of people and I want to make sure that those here today leave feeling energised and enthused, with an understanding of what great out of hospital care is, how it relates to them and that we all keep on talking about it.”
Richard Douglas, Chair Designate of the South East London Integrated Care System (SEL ICS) and guest speaker, said: “I am really looking forward to hearing and seeing a lot more about great out of hospital care as this is something that is central to our objectives within the ICS.
“Unless you need the specialised service that a hospital provides, you absolutely shouldn’t be in one.”
