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.

An opportunity has arisen for a motivated, innovative and resourceful person to join the Oxfordshire Wheelchair Service as an Administrator supporting the Oxfordshire Wheelchair Service that is based in the Oxford Centre for Enablement at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre. To fulfil this role you must be an excellent communicator, well organised, self-motivated and able to work well on your own initiative and as part of a team with strong IT skills.

The successful applicant will be responsible for supporting the OWS service in processing patients through the referral to appointment pathway, procuring patient equipment ready for patient follow up appointments and raising requests to our approved repairer service for equipment maintenance. They will also handle telephone call and email queries throughout the day.

Excellent computer literacy is important especially in using Microsoft Office applications. Previous experience of using the Electronic Patient Record (ELMS2) or NHS IT systems would be advantageous, although full training will be offered. Excellent team working and prioritisation skills are crucial, and previous experience of working in the NHS would be helpful but not mandatory. You will have a multi-tasking ability and have a flexible approach to work in this dynamic and ever-evolving environment, and must be able to work well under pressure to meet tight deadlines.

Applicant requirements

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.
