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

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an inspirational, enthusiastic individual to lead the Neurosurgery (Green) Inpatient Ward/Day surgery Unit. We are looking for an exceptional leader who will adopt the Trust values into their practice and be passionate about providing the best outcomes and a positive experience for everyone. You must have a proven track record of progressive leadership and development, be an effective role model, and be self-motivated with the passion, drive and adaptability to cope with continuously changing services. The successful candidate will lead and support in an environment where the patient and staff are central to the decision making process and the delivery of high quality compassionate care is the prime objective. You should possess excellent communication skills, be visible and accessible, with experience of delivering efficient and effective patient care.
