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.

An opportunity has arisen to join the Bowel Cancer Screening Programme in Oxford and be part of one of the leading screening centres in the country. The Oxfordshire Bowel Cancer Screening Programme operates across two screening sites, the John Radcliffe Hospital and the Horton Hospital, to deliver both the FOBT and Bowel Scope Screening programmes. With a new test kit scheduled to be rolled out nationally, the screening centre is offering the opportunity for an administration officer to join the team.

 The successful applicant will be a reliable, enthusiastic and positive individual who pays attention to detail, is able to work under pressure and have a flexible and committed approach to their role. The post holder will have contact with patients, carers, Trust staff and professionals involved in the Bowel Cancer Screening process and therefore must be able to communicate to a diverse range of people in a professional, sensitive and sympathetic manner. Core responsibilities involve the booking of patients into the relevant clinics, communicating with patients over the phone, as well as retrieving, preparing and filing medical notes.  Excellent computer literacy is important, especially in using Microsoft Office applications Accurate data entry onto the screening database as well as the Trust Electronic Patient Record (EPR) system will also be central to the post holder’s responsibilities.

This post is a 12-month fixed term contract, with opportunity to extend. The role is based primarily at the John Radcliffe Hospital, working 9am – 5pm to ensure the smooth running of the service. Previous experience of using the EPR or NHS IT systems would be advantageous, however full training will be offered. Excellent team working and prioritisation skills are crucial, and previous experience of working in the NHS would be helpful but not mandatory.
