The Oxford University Hospitals NHS 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.

Consultant in Nephrology

Applications are invited to apply for the above post for the Oxford Kidney Unit at the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

The Oxford Kidney Unit (OKU) is seeking to appoint a consultant nephrologist to provide a full range of outpatient nephrology and transplant services for the Oxford Kidney Unit (OKU):

The Kidney unit at the Churchill Hospital comprises a 19 bed renal ward, 20 bed transplant ward, 6 bed day-case unit, 39 haemodialysis stations, and PD and specialist nursing teams.
The OKU has 5 network units which are based in High Wycombe, Stoke Mandeville, Swindon, Milton Keynes and Banbury. The service is in the process of outpatient reconfiguration so the clinics required in a network unit location are yet to be decided. This can be discussed further at the visit.

You would join a successful team of 7 NHS consultants, and work alongside 6 university staff.

The appointment is on a full time basis though job-share would be considered. Close links with the university mean that the opportunity to develop a special interest is possible, or to be involved in research.

Oxford is a beautiful historic city with much to offer. We have excellent schools and fabulous communities. With access to London there is something for everyone.
