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.

Job Advert: Cardiovascular Research Studies Coordinator 

  • Do you currently work in a research / research administration role? 
  • Are you interested in a new challenge?
  • Would you like to make a positive impact within cardiovascular research, and be part of a highly effective team who are making a difference to current and future patient care every day?

An exciting opportunity has arisen to recruit an enthusiastic, motivated person with a background in research administration and some experience in a project management / coordination type role to join the Cardiovascular Research Team. The Cardiovascular Studies Coordinator is key to the efficient and quality administration of NHSgoverned cardiovascular studies undertaken within the Oxford Heart Centre, and the post-holder will take a central role in the overall coordination of administration for allocated clinical trials, working closely with the Senior Nurse (who leads the Cardiovascular Research Team) to provide a seamless and quality service potentially involving all aspects of study set-up and coordination/management.

The NHS Oxford Heart Centre and University Department of Cardiovascular Medicine are involved in a wide spectrum of clinical research ranging from observational studies to early phase clinical studies to large, multi-centre randomised trials. The Cardiovascular Research Team are a team of Cardiovascular Research Nurses and Data Co-ordinators working together to provide a quality support service for the rolling program of cardiovascular research studies, trials and projects undertaken within the OUH. Whilst all the studies involve NHS patients, some are governed by the NHS and some by the University of Oxford. The majority of the projects undertaken are listed on the NIHR portfolio, and the post holder will be expected to liaise with some members of the Local Clinical Research Network (LCRN), as well as to develop collaborative relationships with the departments of the R&D Department and the University of Oxford’s Clinical Trials and Research Governance department based in the OUH Joint Research Office.

The aim of our team is to provide a quality patient-focused research service for the Principal Investigators within the Oxford Heart Centre, and to ensure that research is conducted on a highly professional, performance-driven basis. The post holder will need to apply good practical understanding and knowledge of the UK-GCP research framework in order to navigate the system effectively, and will work with members of the team and investigators on a specific portfolio of studies. This could include cardiovascular studies within any of the specialist cardiology areas of intervention, cardiac rhythm management and imaging, as well as general cardiology studies and cardiac surgery.
