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 exciting opportunity has arisen within the ultrasound department based in the Women’s Unit at Oxford University Hospital’s NHS Trust for a qualified sonographer or midwife sonographer.   The successful candidate will have a broad experience of current obstetric ultrasound techniques including nuchal translucency, Transvaginal scanning and Doppler assessment. 


The John Radcliffe Hospital is a tertiary referral maternity unit and post holders will experience a varied case load of high and low risk pregnancies.  In addition, the department has a close working relationship with the Fetal Medicine Unit, the lead centre for the Regional Fetal Medicine Network.


You will be supported by a multidisciplinary group of committed Sonographers, Support Workers, Obstetricians, Nurses and Midwives who provide an excellent service for pregnant women.  The expectation is that the individual team members are actively involved in teaching, research, audit and multidisciplinary meetings.   The individual must have a strong commitment to practice, safety and the provision of a responsive, dynamic ultrasound service. 


Liaison with the Consultant Obstetricians, Fetal Medicine Specialists, nurses and midwives is key and as such the successful applicant must be a team player and have excellent communication skills. 


Applicants must hold either the Certificate/Diploma (as appropriate) in Medical Ultrasound (CMU/DMU) or Post Graduate Certificate in Obstetric Ultrasound (PGCert or DMU) with qualifications relevant to obstetric scanning and be able to provide evidence of relevant continuous professional development.  Gynae Ultrasound experience is also desirable.
