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.

The Pain Neuromodulation service is a regional, national and international referral centre for the neurosurgical management of chronic pain. We are based within the Neurosciences Unit at the John Radcliffe Hospital. Our service is one of the busiest Pain Neuromodulation services in the UK offering a wide range of treatments for chronic intractable pain and headache.

We are currently looking for an experienced Registered Nurse with proven recent experience at Band 6/7 in a relevant area of clinical practice. The post-holder will be involved in the management of patients throughout the patient pathway from assessment to implant, to long term follow-up.

You will have a demonstrable interest in pain management, neurosciences or theatres through post-registration education or your current clinical role. Evidence of working as an effective and efficient senior member of a multidisciplinary team is essential. We are keen to help you develop into this advanced role and our current ANP’s will support you with a structured orientation plan focussing on specific pain neuromodulation skills.

If you are a motivated, dynamic, highly organised nurse with advanced interpersonal and communications skills then this may be the opportunity you are seeking in order to develop your practice at advanced level in a highly autonomous role.

Experience of working independently at Band 6 level is essential for the Band 7 role and you must currently be enrolled on the Masters level Advanced Nursing Practice programme. For the trainee Band 6 ANP role we will consider applicants with Band 6 experience in a relevant clinical area, and are willing to enrol on the Masters programme.

A flexible approach to working hours is required to cover the service. Nurse cover is provided by the team for intra-operative, post-operative, ward and clinic based activity.

We would welcome an informal discussion or visit with the team.
