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.

West Wing, John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford.

Band 6, 37.5 hrs per week with no Saturday rotation
Range: £26, 565 - £35,577 depending on experience
This is an exciting opportunity for a HCPC registered Biomedical Scientist, specialising in cellular pathology, to expand their skills and experience in the discipline of neuropathology. You’ll be working with a small supportive team in good facilities at the West Wing on the John Radcliffe Hospital site. We are adjacent to the relevant clinical services and provide an excellent setting for sharing facilities, expertise and knowledge with University of Oxford scientists/students working in university embedded space. The department is also a base for the Oxford Brain Bank.

While cellular pathology experience is essential, full training in the specialised work of the department will be given. In addition to providing training for neuropathology surgical and post mortem service provision we plan to provide training and experience in immunocytochemistry and muscle histochemistry. The skill set gained will be very transferrable and the work interesting and varied. After a period of training you will rotate through all areas on a regular basis. You should be enthusiastic and motivated with the ability to work well as part of a team, as well as independently. Hospital accommodation may be available if required.
In the absence of suitably experienced candidates, applicants would be considered for a Band 5 position with an aim to further your experience.
Closing date: 5th of July 2017 or after 100 applications

Planned interview date 17th-19th July 2017
