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.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic, motivated nurse to work within the Critical Care Research Group, based at the Kadoorie Centre. The post holder will work predominantly on a new study testing ambulatory vital signs monitoring in clinical care.

You must be a registered nurse capable of autonomous clinical work with extensive post-registration experience in relevant clinical areas (intensive care, or adult acute medical or surgical settings) and evidence of keeping up to date with nursing practice and professional developments. The role will include submitting ethics and regulatory submissions, and associated document control; patient screening, recruitment, and consent; and qualitative and quantitative data collection. Previous research experience would be an advantage. The post holder will be supported by the Senior Nurse Researcher, and wider research team. This role is funded by the NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre.

Individual patient studies may run continuously for several days. Flexibility to work some early starts, late finishes, cover weekends, and to be available for both clinical and technical trouble-shooting advice, is likely to be necessary. This is a fixed term post to 31-Mar-2019, with the possibility of extension. Part-time/job share applications will be considered.
