The 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 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.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an individual to join the Vascular Surgery team at the John Radcliffe Hospital as our Thames Valley Vascular Network (TVVN) Coordinator. This is a great opportunity for an enthusiastic, motivated and proactive individual who takes pride in their work. Excellent communication and interpersonal skills are essential, as you will be required to liaise with staff at all levels associated with multi-disciplinary team working. You will need to be able to work well as part of a larger team, as well as have the ability to work autonomously and be able to multi-task. You will also need to have an eye for detail, exceptional organisational skills, and be able to manage changing priorities as they arise, in a calm and professional manner, to ensure a smooth running and efficient service.


The role encompasses a variety of responsibilities including facilitation of the weekly Vascular MDT meeting and liaison with staff from a variety of departments, hospitals, and organisations in order to achieve the best possible outcome for our patients. The Network Coordinator will take responsibility for coordinating the pathways for all patients requiring major vascular procedures, and is supported by the Clinical Lead, MDT Lead Consultant and Network and Service Manager to achieve this. These patients may be cared for solely by the vascular service or may be under the care of other specialties.  The post-holder will routinely interact with clinicians and administrators across all hospitals to plan clinical investigations, treatment and post-treatment follow-up.  The post-holder will work with all members of the multidisciplinary team (MDT), including, but not restricted to: clinicians, nurse specialists, allied health professionals, administration personnel and management teams. 


The Thames Valley Vascular Network delivers vascular interventions for approximately 1 million patients across Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire.  The Network consists of Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (OUHFT), Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust (RBFT) and Buckinghamshire Healthcare Trust (BHT).  Major vascular operations and interventions are provided at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, with outpatient clinics and diagnostics provided in other settings across the region. The Thames Valley Vascular Network Coordinator is essential for ensuring communication between all hospitals in the network to coordinate patient care effectively.


The post-holder will be based at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, but may be required to travel to other sites in the network.


If you are looking for a new challenge, enjoy variety in your work and wish to be part of a conscientious, patient-focused team, we want to hear from you.
