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.

For more information about our Values and Value Based Interviewing please visit www.ouh.nhs.uk/about/vision-and-values


An exciting opportunity has arisen for a highly motivated, enthusiastic and driven registered nurse to join the Thames Valley and South Midlands Clinical Research Network based at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford. The successful applicant will work on an inspiring range of research studies within the field of epilepsy, and therefore would suit someone with a clinical background or specific interest in this field. The post itself sits within the Neurodegeneration, Neurological disorders and Dementia research team.


Our research team play a vital role in setting up research studies to take place in the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, recruiting patients and carers to take part and ensuring the smooth running of the research study clinics. The successful applicant would also be expected to administer clinical research assessments, and to autonomously coordinate studies.


A comprehensive induction and training programme (including training and support to develop specialist assessment skills) will be developed and tailored to your requirements; therefore experience in clinical research is desirable but not essential. In addition, there is a well-established team of research nurses and practitioners to provide peer support.
