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 Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre (NOC) is at the forefront of medical innovation and has been treating patients with bone and joint problems for more than 80 years with a world-wide reputation for excellence in orthopaedics, rheumatology and rehabilitation.  The hospital also undertakes specialist services such as the treatment of bone infection and bone tumours, limb reconstruction and the rehabilitation of those with limb amputation or complex neurological disabilities.


As part of the Oxford University Hospitals Foundation Trust (OUH), we pride ourselves on being a world renowned centre of clinical excellence and one of the largest NHS teaching trusts in the UK. Our Radiographers have the opportunity of working and gaining experience across all of the OUH sites.


Our collaboration with the University of Oxford underpins the quality of the care that is provided to patients, from the delivery of high-quality research, bringing innovation from the laboratory bench to the bedside, to the delivery of high-quality education and training of staff.


We are looking for an enthusiastic, highly motivated radiographer to complement our friendly, social and dynamic Radiology team here at the Nuffield Orthopedic Centre in Oxford.

This is an excellent opportunity for you to further your clinical experience within the field of musculoskeletal imaging. We are a busy orthopaedic radiology department carrying out all types of general and specialist orthopaedic examinations. All radiographers rotate to general x-ray, fluoroscopy and theatres. There is also an opportunity to rotate through our bone densitometry suite.


As a centre we strive to achieve a gold standard service and consistently promote best practice through our staff training and departmental audit programmes. All staff are actively encouraged to assist with both departmental and professional development as part of ongoing CPD and clinical governance guidance. We have an ongoing CPD programme that invites highly renowned surgeons, radiologists, radiographers and physiotherapists to come and talk to our department on a monthly basis.


All staff are required to work 4 days per week over 7 days and cover on-call shifts from home over the nights and weekends. This post requires an active role in the maintenance of image quality and high standards of diagnostic imaging as well as the mentorship and support of student radiographers.


Our band 5 radiographers are encouraged to undertake their accelerated programme of development through Annexe T of Agenda for Change, which will see successful radiographers progress to band 6 within 18 months.

You should hold the appropriate BSc qualifications, HCPC registration and experience in orthopaedic radiography. In addition, you must have excellent communication skills and be able to work on your own initiative and as a member of a team.

Please note that this post is subject to a 6 month probationary period.
