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 four hospitals - the John Radcliffe Hospital, Churchill Hospital and Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Headington and the Horton General 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 Value 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 significant difference to your job satisfaction and above all the outcomes and experience of our patients and their families.

The Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (OUHFT) employs over 11,000 staff and 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 NOTSS Divisional Data and Information Office acts as the hub for data collection, information provision and reporting for the Neurosciences, Orthopaedic, Trauma and Specialist Surgery (NOTSS) Division, the Oxford Major Trauma Centre (MTC) and regional Thames Valley Clinical Networks (including Trauma, Spinal and Vascular Networks).

The post holder will work to support the Senior Information Analyst and Office Manager in the collection of data, analysis, reporting and dissemination across the Division, MTC and Networks, on behalf of (OUHFT).


Data will largely be extracted from Electronic Patient Record systems, electronic databases, clinical notes, and post mortem reports to identify patients and extract relevant detailed information.  Data validity and quality will be enhanced if the post-holder has experience of extracting information from clinical notes, and/or experience of working in a clinical environment.


The main aim of this post is to promote and support the effective use of data, information, knowledge, and technology to inform the delivery of high quality innovative clinical care and outcomes for both trauma and/or elective patients.

Important goals include:

·         To use a variety of sources of information, including existing database systems, for the collection, entry, validation, and extraction of information.

·         The production of data, information, and intelligence using a variety of IT tools and analytical techniques.

·         To disseminate statistical information and results.

·         To support the provision of data and information for organisational purposes and to meet national and legal requirements.

The post-holder will share some responsibilities with other members of the Data and Information Office, to ensure a comprehensive information service to NHS partners and stakeholders at the organisational, local and national level.


Additional Information:

The British Spine Registry (BSR) was established in May 2012. It is a web-based database for the collection of information about spinal surgery in the UK. The BSR collects large volumes of clinical and patient outcome data for all who undergo particular operations. The information collected is analysed to increase understanding of operation’s success, with the aim to improve patient safety and monitor the results of spinal surgery.


The Trauma Audit & Research Network (TARN) has been working with NHS Trusts across England and Wales for 20 years to improve emergency health care systems by collating and analysing trauma patient care data within each Trust. The registry of more than 500,000 injured patients provides a statistical base to support clinical audit and is a rich source of information to support trauma service improvement.  TARN produces quarterly comparative reports for participating hospitals. These aid multi-speciality clinical case review and system of trauma care evaluation.


The National Hip Fracture Database (NHFD) is a joint venture of the British Geriatrics Society (BGS) and the British Orthopaedic Association (BOA), and is designed to facilitate improvements in the quality and cost effectiveness of hip fracture care. It allows care to be audited against the six evidence-based standards set out in the BGS/BOA Blue Book on the care of patients with fragility fracture; and enables local health economies to benchmark their performance in hip fracture care against national data.


The Surgical Site Infection Surveillance (SSIS) service helps hospitals in England record and follow up incidents of infection after surgery, and uses results to review or change practice as necessary.


The International Burns Injury Database (iBID) was created in 2005 to facilitate the continuous collection of data concerning burn injuries, to allow improvements in prevention, monitoring, outcome assessemt and research.


The post holder will be responsible for the provision of timely, accurate and reliable data to the BSR, TARN, NHFD, SSIS and/or iBID.  This will involve the identification of patients admitted to the Trust who meet the inclusion criteria for these databases, and subsequent completion of data submissions via electronic data collection and reporting systems, and through contact with patients via phone and email.
