The Oxford University Hospitals NHS 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.

Applications are invited for a post within the established Oxford Critical Care Fellowship Programme which will provide a unique training opportunity in clinical Critical Care within the two general Intensive Care departments.  Critical Care provides the ideal environment to develop core clinical skills and procedural competence in managing acutely unwell medical and surgical patients.  The high level of clinical supervision provides the optimal training environment for trainees looking to develop their clinical practice before embarking on higher specialist training.


This programme is aimed at all trainees considering potential careers in Critical Care or other acute specialities, looking to develop comprehensive practical skills and knowledge within the field of Intensive Care medicine.  Specifically, training will be provided in management of the acutely unwell patient, including assessment and stabilisation, relevant procedures and therapeutics.  Additional training to achieve transthoracic cardiac echocardiography (FICE) will be integrated to fellows completing 24 months or more, in collaboration with the Oxford Critical Care Echocardiography fellowship.  Successful applicants will be offered formal training and supervision in the development and delivery of audit and quality improvement systems.  There is scope for individuals to tailor their time by mutual agreement to include additional qualifications in teaching, research and management.
