Job Details

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 V alue 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.

An excellent opportunity for a permanent post as a Healthcare Science Practitioner has arisen in our Radioisotope Physics team. We support radioisotope services in nuclear medicine & PET/CT, oncology, nuclear cardiology and laboratories. The postholder will be part of a team that supports a wide range of equipment including two PET/CT systems, two SPECT/CT systems, three further SPECT gamma cameras, and a full range of equipment supporting these services. As well as a wide range of diagnostic tests we support a broad range of routine and advanced radionuclide therapies in dedicated unsealed source treatment suites. In addition, the section is involved in the provision of radiation protection support to all Trust departments using radioisotopes, as well as supporting a large number of clinical trials.
For appointment at Band 5 candidates will have a degree in Physical Sciences or in a subject with a significant Physics component and have completed or are currently undertaking the PTP programme in Nuclear Medicine or Radiation Physics or have equivalent knowledge/experience. Experience of working with radioisotopes in Physics or Clinical Nuclear Medicine is highly desirable.
We are an Accredited Training Centre for the IPEM Clinical Technologist Training Scheme to enable candidates with less experience to achieve registration with the Register of Clinical Technologists.
We also support applications from candidates without a relevant degree who wish to apply for the Healthcare Science Degree Apprenticeship Programme. They will be appointed at a lower band initially while supported through the BSc Honours degree and apprenticeship.
