Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Oxford University Hospitals (OUH) is a world-renowned centre of clinical excellence and one of the largest NHS teaching trusts in the UK. They became a Foundation Trust on 1 October 2015 and believe that this will enable them to work more effectively in partnership with their patients and their local community to provide high-quality healthcare.

Their hospitals

The Trust is made up of four hospitals:

  • the John Radcliffe Hospital (which includes the Children’s Hospital, West Wing, Eye Hospital, Heart Centre and Women’s Centre)
  • the Churchill Hospital and the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre
  • the Horton General Hospital in Banbury, north Oxfordshire

OUH provides a wide range of clinical services, specialist services (including cardiac, cancer, musculoskeletal and neurological rehabilitation) medical education, training and research.

Most services are provided in their hospitals, but over six percent are delivered from 44 other locations across the region, and some in patients’ homes.


OUH’s 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 education and training of doctors.

Existing collaborations include the ambitious research programmes established through the Oxford Biomedical Research Centre (BRC), funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), located on the John Radcliffe Hospital site and at the Biomedical Research Unit in musculoskeletal disease at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre. These set the standard in translating science and research into new and better NHS clinical care.

Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and NCIMI

OUH and NCIMI (National Consortium of Intelligent Medical Imaging) share a physical base in Oxford, combining clinical excellence with world-leading research. NCIMI’s chief medical officer Prof Fergus Gleeson is partly based at OUH as a consultant radiologist, as is our Clinical Validation lead Dr Sarim Ather.

We collaborate with clinicians at OUH as part of our strategic reader studies and AI validation and real world deployment, for example GE’s X-Ray project exploring use of AI in scanning within the ER department.
