The Chief Financial Officer of Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Jason Dorsett, will be contributing to our Oxford 'Science Cities' forum in October, at the world-famous Pitt Rivers Museum in the city. He will be discussing future plans for developing the Trust's land holdings in Headington for R&D and housing.
Jason's extensive career experience includes three years as the Deputy Finance Director at University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and roles within HM Treasury and major audit and professional services companies. He was previously the Director of Finance, Reporting and Risk at the foundation trust regulator, Monitor.
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, all located in Oxford, and the Horton General Hospital in Banbury, north Oxfordshire.
It 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 the Trust's hospitals, but over six percent are delivered from 44 other locations across the region, and some in patients' homes.
The Trust says its 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.
The Trust is also working towards achieving Magnet® Recognition, an organisational credential awarded to exceptional healthcare organisations that meet the ANCC (American Nurses' Credentialing Center) standards for quality patient care, nursing and midwifery excellence and innovations in professional nursing and midwifery practice.
