The Oxford University Hospitals NHS 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.

Consultant in Neuroradiology (diagnostic/paediatric)

The department provides tertiary level neuroradiological care to a population of approximately 3 million. The successful candidate will be integral to supporting, developing and expanding the diagnostic neuroradiology service by working within the multidisciplinary, with the aim of further enhancing the care of patients presenting to Neuroradiology. The imminent replacement of MR and CT scanners will allow further development of high-quality diagnostic imaging, with an emphasis on advanced/functional imaging.

The post-holder will work in close collaboration with the paediatric neuroradiology consultant in post and support the expansion in that service.

This will include all facets of paediatric neuro imaging with a large neurology, oncology, neurosurgery, neurodevelopmental, trauma and fetal referral base and require participation in several multidisciplinary meetings (e.g. neuro-oncology, neurology/neurosurgery, and others). Paediatric services are centred within the Oxford Children’s’ Hospital and incorporate both general and specialised paediatrics. There is a dedicated neonatal (level 4) and children’s’ intensive care unit. There are close links with the Fetal Medicine Unit for prenatal diagnosis.

We provide hospital and community healthcare to the residents of Oxfordshire and Thames Valley. We are also a specialist regional and super regional centre for a number of services including Neurosciences and Craniofacial. We are also the Major Trauma Centre for the region.

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 medical education and training of doctors.

Existing collaborations include the ambitious research programs established through the Oxford Biomedical Research Centre (BRC), funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR); and close collaboration with the research neuroimaging groups including FMRIB.

The post will have an on-call commitment and the post holder will be expected to contribute to the performance and governance agenda of the division.

Salary: £77,913 to £105,042 per annum
