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 Cancer Management Team is undertaking a major MDT reform project. Part of this project will be to evaluate the effectiveness of MDTs and to assess the impact of the introduction of new software to improve the functionality of the MDT. Working directly with the Trust Cancer Lead and a Senior Surgical Specialist Registrar, the MDT and Cancer Pathways Improvement Officer will help develop metrics to assess the efficiency and activity of MDTs, and then use these metrics to measure the impact of the introduction of this software.

They will work collegiately with Divisional teams to monitor and report, the national cancer performance standards, clinical datasets, national audits and service improvement programmes. They will be responsible for providing timely reports for validation and approval to divisions and assurance reports for executive, Cancer Strategy Group and the Trust Board regarding Trust compliance.
