The South Central region was formed in 2009 by amalgamation of the Wessex & Oxford regions. It consists of the five counties of Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. For administrative purposes, the division between Wessex and Oxford has been maintained in some areas.
It contains nine acute hospital Trusts and serves a population of approximately four million people.
There are many areas of outstanding beauty including the Chiltern Hills, the university city of Oxford, Windsor and its castle (pictured), the Solent and the famous seafaring centres of Southampton & Portsmouth.
The Channel Islands (Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney, Herm & Sark), although geographically closer to France, lie within easy reach by ferry or by air. Their unique combination of English and French culture makes the islands a popular tourist destination.
