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.

As a Radiographer have you considered dipping your toe into the world of research? You could gain valuable skills, test new and innovative treatments and ways of working which in turn will benefit patients and the NHS. You don’t have to have research experience (but some is a bonus!) we will help train you along with our colleagues at the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and expertise within the research Radiology department. We will help you unravel research processes and terminology. We also hope to offer you some clinical sessions to enhance your clinical skills within the fantastic Radiology team here at the Churchill.


Please don’t hesitate to give me a call on: 01865 57 2691 or email on: Danielle.wilson@ouh.nhs.uk to have an informal chat or look around our department.


The project: The Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust in collaboration with Teaching Hospitals in Leeds, Nottingham and the University of Oxford have been awarded National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) funding to conduct a research study to investigate pulmonary nodules detected on CT scans. The study is in collaboration with Optellum Ltd who are developing and testing software for supporting the diagnosis and risk stratification of small lung nodules using Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.   The software aims to reduce the numbers of unnecessary follow up procedures performed on patients.  It will involve data collection, patient and clinician interactions, liaising with other members of the research team in Oxford, Leeds, Nottingham and Optellum Ltd and other departments in the Trust and University. This radiographer will be part of both the wider Churchill Radiology Research team and the Churchill Radiology department. There is an opportunity to actively pursue career developments with advanced CT knowledge and training, academic career pathways, and involvement with other modalities at the Churchill Hospital. Training will be given.


The Candidate: This is an exciting opportunity for a Radiographer with an interest in research, artificial intelligence and pulmonary nodules to gain valuable experience within these areas in a supportive environment. We have an experienced research team who will help and guide you.
