Rural crime update from Assistant Chief Constable Nikki Ross

   Reply to https://www.thamesvalley.police.uk/advice/protecting-your-business/rural-crime/  December 2017 Rural crime update from Assistant Chief Constable Nikki Ross Reports of rural crime in the Thames Valley have increased by five percent between October 2016 and September 2017. I would like to reassure members of our rural communities of my commitment to investigating reports of rural crime. We rely on information from our local communities and take such reports very seriously. Incidents are robustly investigated by our local policing teams who have dedicated Rural Crime and Wildlife Officers based across the Thames Valley.

Your waste collections – adverse weather – LEAVE OUT FOR 3 DAYS

Our waste collection crews are out and about emptying bins where they can, although most side streets are too dangerous for their 26 tonne trucks. If it is safe to do so, please put your bins out as normal.  If the bins in your street aren't emptied on your normal collection day, please leave them out for three days and we will try and come back to get them.  If we haven't managed to get back to you in three days, bring your bins back in and we will come and get them next time they're due.  If this is the case, we will collect extra waste left out next to your bin next time around. Even if the roads around you are clear, it might still be difficult for our waste collection crews to reach you - that might be because the roads between you and our depot are not passable for our large trucks or it might just be that the snow and...

Have your say on your doctors surgery and future of GP services in Oxfordshire

Reply to:  https://consult.oxfordshireccg.nhs.uk/consult.ti/SELocalityPlan/consultationHome Dear All The draft locality plans for GP practices and primary care in Oxfordshire are now published and available for comment until 17 December. Each Plan identifies the priorities of the local area and outlines ways to make GP services more sustainable and responsive to patient’s needs. With health and care services under significant pressure no single GP practice or provider organisation has one solution. However the draft plan maps out how GP practices can work together and with other providers to ensure sustainability and improvements in patient care. NHS are grateful for all the patient feedback and to those who have engaged and helped us to develop the plans thus far. NHS would now like to hear your views on the ideas and proposals in each of the Locality place based plans for Oxfordshire. To read the place based plan for each of the Localities in Oxfordshire and to take part in the surveys, please click on the link above....
