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.

Staff Nurse Band 5 -  £22,128 - £28,746 per annum (plus supplements if required to work unsocial hours or weekends)


 We are looking for Band 5 Registered Nurses to join the team on the Emergency Assessment Unit. 

EAU is an area within the Horton Hospital which accepts direct referrals from the primary GP settings alongside referrals from our ED department and Ambulatory Assessment Unit.

The EAU is a fast paced and dynamic clinical area, caring for patients with a wide range of general medical conditions. We also can house surgical, orthopaedic and Emergency patients when required. 

The unit is split into a 16 bed emergency assessment area which runs alongside a rapid nurse assessment and ambulatory area. We also have an additional 18 short stay beds, which work closely with the medics and the members of the multi-disciplinary team to facilitate treatment alongside safe and prompt discharge planning. The nurses rotate around the two areas of this unit so that they can gain knowledge and skills within this area of emergency medicine. 

The successful applicant will demonstrate a passion for general medical nursing, and may have experience in this acute setting within the last 6 months, however newly qualified applicants are also welcomed.

Confident, compassionate care delivery and excellent communication skills are essential for this role, with the trust values playing a major role in the delivery of care within our unit.
The successful post holder will need to be a forward thinking, motivated, and professional nurse who is committed to providing a high standard of holistic care and can demonstrate an ability to work in partnership with patients and their families.
