Welcome to Oxford Health Complex Needs Service


Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Complex Needs Services were originally funded by the Department of Health to develop ways of working with people who have long term emotional difficulties, trouble coping, or mental health difficulties sometimes described as ‘personality disorder’ or ‘complex needs’. Such difficulties are often treatable consequences of earlier experiences of poor treatment or exclusion.

Since 2014 they have been funded by the local Clinical Commissioning Groups in the two counties as part of mainstream mental health services. In 2015 the two services amalgamated to better provide joined up services across the two counties, and became the Oxford Health Complex Needs Service.

Please note, following the recent merger between Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Complex Needs Services, this website covers the merged service.
