The Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest NHS teaching trusts in the country. It provides a wide range of general and specialist clinical services and is a base for medical education, training and research.

The Trust comprises of four hospitals - the John Radcliffe Hospital, Churchill Hospital and Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Headington and the Horton Hospital in Banbury.

Our values, standards and behaviours define the quality of clinical care we offer and the professional relationships we make with our patients, colleagues and the wider community. We call this Delivering Compassionate Excellence and its focus is on our values of compassion, respect, learning, delivery, improvement and excellence. These values put patients at the heart of what we do and underpin the quality healthcare we would like for ourselves or a member of our family. Watch how we set out to deliver compassionate excellence via the OUH YouTube channel.

Many of our recruitment programmes use values-based interviewing to identify those who have the skills we seek, who share our values and who are able to deliver compassionate excellence from the outset. We know that this makes a significance difference to your job satisfaction and above all the outcomes and experience of our patients and their families.

The Oxford Cancer Centre offers an exciting opportunity to work within a dynamic team, using and developing the latest techniques, technologies and skills to care for and support patients. We are seeking an enthusiastic, motivated HCPC registered Therapeutic Radiographer who will be responsible for the day to day management of the department.


We are one of only a small number of centres commissioned by NHS England to deliver SABR and SRS.  IMRT, IGRT, DIBH and portal dosimetry are well established routine practices within the department. We also offer paediatric and TBI services.  Our Centre has 6 Varian multi-mode Linear Accelerators with CBCT and RapidArc capability, plus one linac with BrainLab ExacTrac.  The pre-treatment section comprises of a GE CT scanner, virtual simulation, 3D & 4D planning, Acuity simulator and Varian Eclipse treatment planning systems, all networked by ARIA. There is on site access to PET-CT and MRI.


Expansion of the service is currently underway with a new satellite unit being built in Swindon which will be equipped with 2 Varian Truebeams. From 2019 we will begin a 4 year programme replacing all equipment at the Centre as part of our managed equipment service and will start by replacing the Acuity with a CT scanner.


We currently have 2 Consultant Radiographers and also a number of Advanced Practitioners working in head and neck, paediatrics, TYA, palliative planning and SRS. Further posts are under development. 3 Radiographers achieved their independent prescribing qualifications 12 months ago and we have 2 Radiographers working in the Late Phase Research Team. As a department we are proud of our strong culture of learning, education and support. We encourage Radiographers to embark on, and undertake learning opportunities.


Our department works collaboratively with Cancer Research UK and Medical Research Council Oxford Institute for Radiation Oncology (University of Oxford); the primary goal of which is making cancer treatments less invasive and more directed to the characteristics of the patient's own tumour. The University fund 2 full time early phase research Radiographer posts and they work closely with the clinical teams in the department.
