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.

Our service is expanding to undertake admission avoidance work, therefore we are looking for a new nurse to join our established team.

Are you looking to develop your skills and knowledge? 

Would you like to be trained to be an Advanced Nurse Practitioner?

Are you looking for a new challenge?

Can you work in a fast paced developing service?


If so we have the post for you….


Our service has 2 main functions:

1.        To facilitate early discharge from hospital by our nurses providing care in the patients home, that they would normally have received in hospital

2.        Admission avoidance, where GP’s or AAU refer to AOT to conduct patient assessments in the community.


An opportunity has arisen for a band 5-6 Advanced Nurse Practitioner (depending on experience) to join the AOT. As our Band 5/6, we are looking for someone, who really wants to make a difference to our patient’s experience in the community and who can work independently at a high level. We work in the community, but the role also involves a large proportion of hospital work predominantly in AAU, ED and EAU.  


We are looking for nurses, who have experience in acute care and are competent in intravenous administration and cannulation - previous nursing experience is preferable.

Access to your own car is a must for this role.

Competitive fuel rates given.

The service includes:

·         Pre Hospital Assessments.

·         Part of urgent care team.

·         ANP shifts on AAU.

·         Anti-microbial stewardship.

·         Cannulation and IV Therapy.

·         Bloods and Point of Care Testing.

·         Subcutaneous Medications and Therapy.

·         Monitoring and Reviewing-including Nurse Prescribing (once trained).

·         Complex Dressings and Wound care.

·         Drains and Catheter Care.
