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.

We have vacancies on several of the wards within Acute General Medicine, the wards are fast paced and interesting with a friendly and supportive environment where staff development is encouraged.
We have an excellent opportunity for nurses to gain a wide range of experience looking after acute medical conditions and ward management expertise. Rotational posts would be available if interested.

The posts are suitable for both newly qualified and experienced nurses who wish to specialise in the exciting and evolving area of medical nursing. We have 2 short stay wards and 4 acute medical wards and there are vacancies across all areas. These wards take acutely unwell patients from ED/EAU and provide complex medical care, supporting both the patients and their family and liaising with the wider MDT to ensure a safe and efficient discharge.
