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 Integration Services Team (IST) has a pivotal role in ensuring the smooth flow of data between the Trust’s Electronic Patient Record system (Cerner Millennium) and over 40 other computer systems used in the delivery of patient care, in health research and in the field of population health.


At a time of high demand for interfaces between our various systems we are looking for a talented individual to take over the management of IST. The successful person will need to combine proven expertise in messaging, interface and database technologies with an ability to analyse complex problems and business situations, and then devise appropriate solutions.


The principal focus of the current position is the management of a small team which delivers the operational development and support for the Trust Integration Engine (TIE). The TIE uses NextGen (Mirth) Connect technology and processes over 250 million messages a year. The role requires dedication to providing first-class customer service allied with working on technically-demanding projects.


As our systems are in use round the clock, being on call as a member of a service support rota may be required as part of this job.
