Welcome to the Personal Information Prescription website for Oxfordshire (pip-ox)

Personal Information Prescriptions will be given to people and their carers by health and social care professionals (for example GPs, social workers) to signpost them to further information and advice to help take care of their own condition. The White Paper 'Our health, our care, our say' set out the commitment by the Department of Health for information prescriptions.

What we do

We provide Personal Information Prescriptions for people with hearing impairment.

What they are

Personal Information Prescriptions are collections of information items selected for patients during consultations. The information is selected to help you to understand your condition. PIPs are being piloted in twenty sites across England from January 2007. These pilots will last for a year, and will help to develop and test information prescriptions, informing the implementation of information prescriptions throughout the country.

What they do

Personal Information Prescriptions will direct people to relevant and personal sources of information about services and treatments that they will need at key points in their care journey, for example, at diagnosis, at different stages of their treatment, for care planning and when they are discharged from hospital. They will signpost anyone with a long term condition information on where to get advice and support, how to make contact with others with a similar condition and important national and local information other than health and social care - like information about benefits.

Who we are

pip-ox is an initiative funded by the Department of Health in partnership with Oxfordshire County Council, Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals NHS Trust Audiology Department and Deaf Direct Oxford.

Who can access the information on this site?

Passwords have been issued to GPs, clinicians, social workers and trained professionals who are all on the care pathway.
