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.

The Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust employs over 11,000 staff and is one of the largest NHS teaching Trusts in the country, split across 4 hospital sites (John Radcliffe, Churchill, and Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Oxford and the Horton General in Banbury). It provides a wide range of general and specialist clinical services and is a base for medical education, training and research. The Neurosciences, Orthopaedic, Trauma and Specialist Surgery (NOTSS) Division is one of four OUH clinical divisions and boasts a complex and highly diverse portfolio of services, attracting activity across a wide geographical area including National Commissioning and Highly Specialised services. The Division delivers almost half of OUH elective activity, the portfolio of services driven by around two thousand staff across all four hospital sites which sees NOTSS generating over £200M of commissioning income.


An opportunity has arisen for a motivated, diligent and hardworking individual to join the NOTSS Divisional Programme Management Office as a Networks and Planning Manager. The aim of the Divisional Programme Management Office is to support the delivery of a series of (interdependent) projects to achieve strategic objectives. These projects will be linked to the individual Clinical Service Unit, Directorate, NOTSS Divisional, and Trust-wide business plans, and Network work programmes. This will include supporting the business planning agenda, business case development and implementation, expertise in programme and project management to deliver against strategic objectives, developing relationships protocols and processes to support integrated patient pathways across clinical networks (including the Thames Valley Trauma Network, Spinal Network, and Vascular Network), and supporting data collection analysis and reporting requirements across the Directorates, Division, and Networks.  The post holder will work as part of the team to facilitate the development, delivery and monitoring of all aspects of the networks work programme, and maintain relevant programme documentation. The post holder will support the Divisional and Clinical Directorates in the development of business plans, Project initiation documents (PIDs), and business cases, in line with Trust procedures, coordinating with corporate entities as required, and ensuring a smooth handover to the Project Manager for implementation of projects.
