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.

Job Title: Roald Dahl Clinical Nurse Specialist – Paediatric Haematology (non-malignant)
Location: Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
Band: 6/7 (NHS pay scales)
Hours of Work: 37.5 hours/week

Roald Dahl specialist children’s nurses provide support, information and practical care for seriously ill children, and support the whole family too. At Oxford University Hospitals, we are very excited to be developing and expanding our paediatric haematology service.

In partnership with Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity, we are looking for an enthusiastic, motivated and dynamic nurse who has a range of experience in looking after children with non-malignant blood conditions, to lead and grow this specialist area. With an increasing caseload and existing strong links to DGH’s in the Thames Valley Network, the right person will work with the lead consultant paediatric haematologist to build on these foundations to create a strong family-centred service. Our recent peer review in October 2015 for haemoglobinopathies was very favorable especially commending the relationships with patients, local DGH leads and also “the strong and enthusiastic leadership” If you have experience in looking after children with non-malignant haematological disorders including haemoglobinopathies and would welcome the opportunity to develop your own career and our service with support from Roald Dahl’s Marvelous Children’s Charity, we would love to hear from you.

The Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is a highly rated, diverse and forward-thinking place to work. We are a Foundation Trust serving a multi-cultural population of over 2 million across Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Slough, Aylesbury, Wycombe and Milton Keynes.
We provide a wide range of clinical services and specialist services, medical education, training and research. Most services are provided in our hospitals, but over six percent are delivered from 44 other locations across the region, and some in patients' homes. Our collaboration with the University of Oxford underpins the quality of the care that is provided to patients, from the delivery of high-quality research, bringing innovation from the laboratory bench to the bedside, to the delivery of high-quality education and training of doctors.
We are a regional centre of excellence for several key paediatric specialties including infectious diseases, respiratory medicine, endocrine, neurology, surgery and subspecialties, cancer, tertiary haematology service including haemophilia and gastroenterology
The hospital continues to be committed to delivering the best patient care using the best clinical knowledge and technology available.
The Paediatric Department sees in excess of 100000 children per year. In line with national initiatives such as ‘Care Closer to Home’, we believe in empowering families. This supports families by reducing lengthy journeys and time away from school. With the right support and education parents and young people can feel more confident to manage their conditions giving them skills to minimise the impact on daily life.
Oxford University Hospitals and the paediatric department have been recognised as a Specialist Paediatric Haemoglobinopathy Centre within the Thames Valley Network. We have grown over the last 7 years and now look after over 150 patients with haemoglobinopathies and we attend 18 peripheral clinics a year to see patients closer to home. At Milton Keynes which has the largest number of patients we perform portable Doppler clinics. Our service mirrors the adult network which allows effective transition of young adults to adult services and the successful applicant will work closely with the adult sickle cell nurse specialist to consolidate this relationship.
This post will enable the family-centred care model and approach with regular meetings, outpatient clinics, education for staff and families and networking between the family, local and tertiary services.

The successful applicant will be eligible to access the Roald Dahl Professional Development Package which will help them to develop their career and the service.
