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.

The Oxford Heart Centre is a friendly, modern environment in which to work and a great place to continue your personal and professional development. The service is committed to research, innovative clinical practice and the delivery of compassionate care.
We think you will enjoy working with us but you don’t have to take our word for it – Cardiology is currently ranked 9th out of 44 wards in the trust in the most recent patient experience survey.

You will enjoy working in a busy environment on this large 41 bedded unit with both bays and side rooms. There are also 6 designated high care beds which accommodate patients with varying complex cardiac needs. Excellent communication and team working skills are essential. We provide in-house and post graduate training under the guidance of our practice development nurse and clinical educator. We have cardiology specific competencies to help our staff demonstrate their professional progression and offer the opportunity to complete our heart centre cardiac foundation course and when ready the chance to apply for a post graduate master’s level cardio-respiratory course at Oxford Brookes. We offer the opportunity to gain knowledge and experience in caring for Cardiology patients requiring specialist cardiac investigations and intervention including a 24 hour primary angioplasty service. We also care for patients with heart failure and rhythm management, including cardiac devices, transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) and the opportunity to care for patients with congenital heart disease requiring medical management, care of patients with pulmonary hypertension and patients’ pre cardiac surgery. So join us in this role, and you will have the chance to broaden your professional horizons and develop your skills in caring for a wide range of cardiac patients.
This is an exciting opportunity either for newly qualified nurses, those who have a keen interest to learn and expand their knowledge or nurses who wish to develop their existing cardiology experience in a specialist centre. If you feel that you have the skills to enhance our continuingly developing ward please come and meet us.
