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.

We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic and qualified band 7 Clinical Physiologist in Neurophysiology.

The post holder will be a section leader, responsible for recording, teaching and reporting of Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS) for Carpal Tunnel Screening. The NCS reporting will be based on a nationally recognised grading scale (Ref: J Bland Aug 2000, Muscle and Nerve 23:1280-3). The post holder will also be working with the clinicians to further develop the NCS role of physiologists.

In addition, the successful candidate will be involved in other  Neurophysiology investigations. The department undertakes routine, sleep, portable  and ambulatory EEG studies, evoked potentials, plus polysomnography and EEG video telemetry. We see a wide range of patients (adults, paediatric and neonates) with referrals coming from a range of medical specialities.

The department functions as a 5-day Monday to Friday unit, however EEG video telemetry sometimes runs over the weekend and we also offer an urgent EEG on-call service on Sundays.

Candidates must have a BSc in Clinical Physiology (Neurophysiology) or equivalent and appropriate registration (see Job Description).
