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.

We are looking for an enthusiastic podiatrist with a strong interest in diabetes and wound care to join our dynamic hospital podiatry team.


The team works across both the acute inpatient and outpatient areas in Oxford University Hospitals Foundation Trust providing treatment for people with active foot disease. The successful applicant would take part in the Multidisciplinary Foot Clinic in OCDEM (Oxford Centre for Diabetes, Endocrine and Metabolism), vascular ward rounds and work to maintain the podiatry led care pathway for inpatients with diabetic foot disease, regularly liasing across speciality services such as the Bone Infection Unit.


In addition to patient facing duties, we provide a specialist teaching to staff across the Trust with regards diabetic foot disease, have an active quality improvement work stream and run a regular clinical supervision session and journal club. The postholder would be encouraged to integrate into all of these activities.


For potential applicants who lack clinical experience within the hospital setting, there would be opportunity to join the team in a developmental post (band 6) completing a competency based mentorship programme over approximately 12 months with subsequent progression to a band 7 post.
