It treats 1 million patients every 36 hours, and is the largest employer in the UK, with over 1.6 million staff. The University works with the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to deliver world-leading medical research.
The site of the first hospital in the city, the Radcliffe Infirmary (1770), has been redeveloped as the University's Radcliffe Observatory Quarter including the Andrew Wiles Building and the Blavatnik School of Government.
