NHS bosses have promised to take into account feedback on changes to services before they carry out a three-month consultation next year.
The Shaping the Future programme, jointly run by all elements of the NHS in east Berkshire, aims to find a long-term solution for hospital and community health services.
In it's first newsletter, published on Friday, chief executive Charles Waddicor said: "Although we have made progress in many areas of the programme over the last few months, we feel the right course of action now is to carry out a detailed review of all the work carried out so far."
Heatherwood and Wexham Park Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust chief executive Philippa Slinger said: "The primary reason for extending the timetable is to allow more time to work through the detail of the clinical model of care including the services that would be provided in the community to enable shorter hospital stays and avoid unnecessary hospital admissions."
