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.

I am Lynda Huard, Matron for Medicine at Horton General  Hospital, Banbury and I would love for you to come and work with us!  We have a great team and are keen to welcome new colleagues to join us at the Horton, a small but vibrant acute hospital with a busy Emergency Department and Urgent Care Pathway within the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, serving the population of North Oxfordshire.  The Horton hospital is an integral part of Banbury and is well supported and appreciated by all in the community. Banbury is a prospering market town in North Oxfordshire benefitting from good transport links whilst retaining the charm of its market town heritage.

We have two medical wards, Juniper and Laburnum, caring for acutely unwell patients with complex medical and nursing needs.  We also have Rowan Ambulatory Unit which provides ambulatory alternatives to admission by offering consultant-led, multi-disciplinary management of conditions equivalent an inpatient stay but allowing patients to go home overnight.  It is open Monday to Friday, 8am to 8pm. 

I understand the pressures of balancing family and work and I would welcome the opportunity to talk to you about flexible working options.  I am happy to be contacted by e-mail and can arrange an informal visit to the wards to meet our friendly team. We can offer you the benefits of the OUH education and career development with our own dedicated professional development team within the unit who can support you to create a bespoke career pathway. We have close links with our colleagues in EAU and the Emergency Department and can discuss rotation options with you if you’re keen.. 

 We will be holding an Open Day Event at the Horton General Hospital on 11th May 2019 between 10:30am and 2pm in Rowan Ambulatory Unit.

If you are looking for a challenge then we would love to meet you on the day  and show you around our friendly unit and meet our teams.
