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 Staff Nurses to join our motivated team within the Emergency Assessment Area at the Horton Hospital.


The Unit is nurse led and assesses patients from the Emergency Department, GP’s and our Rowan Ambulatory Unit.


These patients have pre-dominantly acute medical conditions, which we assess in our Rapid Nurse Assessment area before moving down into our 18 bedded acute area.


EAU also has an 18 bedded short stay area, where our team of OT’s and social workers are involved in rapid discharge planning.


We are proud of our high standards of care and our supportive and friendly environment. We are looking for skilled, enthusiastic and innovative individuals to deliver the best care to our patients.


If you think you have the right values to offer us and would like to develop your professional knowledge, competence, skill, and effectiveness then we would very much like to hear from you. We welcome newly qualified staff, as well as experienced nurses who wish to specialise in the exciting and evolving area of medical nursing.
