The 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 of four hospitals - the John Radcliffe Hospital, Churchill Hospital and Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Headington and the Horton 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 values-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 significance difference to your job satisfaction and above all the outcomes and experience of our patients and their families.

The Department of Laboratory Haematology is spread across 4 sites at 3 hospitals in Oxford and Banbury, and the successful candidates would work as part of a team at the Oxford and Banbury sites of the Trust. Self-development is encouraged with access to a number of postgraduate courses

The Department is both UKAS and HCPC accredited.

The Oxford University Hospital Haematology has a more diverse range of testing being carried out than many other Hospitals with a variety of specialist workload being referred in, and training in appropriate specialist sections would be given, over time, as required.

We require laboratory support staff to work with qualified scientists to perform basic sample preparation and data entry. A flexible approach to working hours is required as the Department provides a 24/7/365 service.

This advert is aimed at staff with existing Laboratory Experience who could start work as a Band 3 role without additional training. Staff without significant experience will not be shortlisted, on this occasion, though there may be other opportunities later in the year. This post will spend the majority of the time based at JRH in Oxford, but will be required to spend some time on the Churchill site.

The successful candidate(s) will work as part of a busy multidisciplinary team and have a positive professional approach to patient care.
