Tom Cox has been arts coordinator at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre (NOC)  since 2004. During that time the hospital has changed dramatically with a construction of a new two phase PFI hospital. His original brief was to bring art in to the new areas of the hospital and over the years the NOC has displayed artwork by hundreds of local and national artists, hosted musicians and dancers and worked with the local community and schools to enliven the hospital.

“The NOC has a rich and interesting history and it has been a long term ambition of the hospital Chair to have a display in the new hospital telling the story of the hospital from its beginnings in 1872 to the present day. The hospital received a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund in 2009 and have been working with local schools and the Oxfordshire Health Archives to achieve this. The mural will be displayed in the main hospital atrium and will provide our patients, staff and visitors with stimulating and informative display.”
