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.

An opportunity has arisen to join the Bowel Cancer Screening team in Oxfordshire. The post holder will work closely with other members of the team, providing administrative support and assistance across both John Radcliffe and Horton Hospital sites, to ensure the smooth and efficient running of the programme.


The successful applicant will be a reliable, enthusiastic and positive individual who pays attention to detail, is able to work under pressure in a busy environment and have a flexible and committed approach to their role. The post holder will have contact with patients, carers, relatives, trust staff and professionals involved in the Bowel Cancer Screening process and must therefore 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 preparing and filing medical notes. 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.


Excellent computer literacy is important, especially in using Microsoft Office applications. Previous experience of using the EPR or NHS IT systems would be advantageous, although 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. The role is based cross-site so it is essential that the successful candidate is able and willing to travel to both the John Radcliffe Hospital and Horton Hospital when required, working 9am – 5pm to ensure the smooth running of the service.

Applicant requirements

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.
