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.

Cancer & Haematology Outpatients Department

Churchill Hospital, Oxford


Had enough of working nights, weekends, late shifts?

Still want to work in an innovative and evolving service?

Want to be involved in future service developments?

If you’re interested in joining a small, friendly team continually striving to improve the standard and quality of care for patients with cancer and haematological disorders in an outpatient setting then this could be the job for you.

The department is open from 08:00 to 18:00hrs, five days per week, with the possibility of extending this in the future. We see up to 300 patients per day, with 75 different consultants holding their clinics here, along with specialist nurses, therapy radiographers, research staff and pharmacists. Our modern purpose built Cancer Centre offers a pleasant environment for both patients and staff.

As a band 5 staff nurse you will contribute to the smooth operational running of the department, acting as a role model for junior team members and support the development and delivery of a high standard of nursing care. You will work closely with the Outpatient Sister and Deputy Sister, acting as the deputy in their absence. There will also be the opportunity to help out with small projects which will enable the department to care for patients undergoing treatment in the outpatient setting.

We aim to provide a service tailored to individual patients’ needs as well as ensuring staff are supported through clinical supervision, educational programmes and on-going professional development. We actively support nurse-led activities and research, offering opportunities for professional and personal development. Our focus is always on providing the best possible patient care and our values reflect those of the Trust: Compassion, Delivery, Excellence, Learning, Respect and Improvement.
